Subject: [PATCH 3/4] posix-cpu-timers: Wider access to the thread clocks

Per-thread clocks are so far accessible only within
the same thread group. This patch makes it possible to get
this information for any thread of the same user and for
a user with CAP_SYS_ADMIN capability.

same_thread_group is not used anymore because if the thread is in
the same thread group as 'current' then they will have the same
owner anyway.
