To make pthreads works as expected if they are using futex2, wake
clear_child_tid with futex2 as well. This is make applications that uses
waitpid() (and clone(CLONE_CHILD_SETTID)) wake while waiting for the
child to terminate. Given that apps should not mix futex() and futex2(),
any correct app will trigger a harmless noop wakeup on the interface
that it isn't using.

This commit is here for the intend to show what we need to do in order
to get a full NPTL working on top of futex2. It should be merged after
we talk to glibc folks on the details around the futex_wait() side. For
instance, we could use this as an opportunity to use private futexes or
8bit sized futexes, but both sides need to use the exactly same flags.
