emacsclient works on w32, but it doesn't use the part that calls
sigprocmask (NO_SOCKETS_IN_FILE_SYSTEM is defined on w32).  So this is
not an issue for w32.

The MSDOS port doesn't support emacsclient at all.

IIUC, using sigprocmask in Emacs proper will never be TRT.  If so, we
can simply rename the sigprocmask stub in w32 to be a pthread_sigmask
stub.
