That overrun calculation takes place in thread context, we were
discussing this for the timer handler. That means, if we generalise, we
would have to pass the overrun counter somehow from the handler to the
awakened thread. Would take another struct field, probably in xnthread.
On the other hand, if that could save code in the posix skin, it may
make sense.
