Note that in order to avoid file conflicts, my patch for #519781 just
adds pages to manpages-dev that are long removed from glibc-doc.

In particular, it does *not* add the man-pages for
pthread_kill_other_threads_np(3), pthread_kill(3), pthread_sigmask(3)
and sigwait(3), because these are still shipped by glibc-doc; glibc-doc
bug #572716 suggests to remove these from glibc-doc.
