Subject: [PATCH] librt: fix NULL pointer dereference (bug 28213)

Helper thread frees copied attribute on NOTIFY_REMOVED message
received from the OS kernel.  Unfortunately, it fails to check whether
copied attribute actually exists (data.attr != NULL).  This worked
earlier because free() checks passed pointer before actually
attempting to release corresponding memory.  But
__pthread_attr_destroy assumes pointer is not NULL.

So passing NULL pointer to __pthread_attr_destroy will result in
segmentation fault.  This scenario is possible if
notification->sigev_notify_attributes == NULL (which means default
thread attributes should be used).

Upstream-Status: Backport [https://sourceware.org/git/?p=glibc.git;a=commit;h=b805aebd42364fe696e417808a700fdb9800c9e8]
