Subject: [SDL] SDL_SemWaitTimeout patch for BeOS

The current SDL-1.2.9/src/thread/beos/SDL_syssem.c returns -1 if the
acquire_sem timeouts which according to the DocWiki is not correct.
I've added support for the B_TIMED_OUT and B_WOULD_BLOCK in the switch.

     3 Using the Simple DirectMedia Layer with EPOC/SymbianOS 6.0
     4 ==============================================================================
     5 
     6 ==============================================================================
     7 I.  Building the Simple DirectMedia Layer libraries:
     8 
     9   You can get Symbian SDK from: 
    10     http://www.symbian.com.
    11  
    12   First create "Epoc" directory under SDL main directory and unpack 
    13   EpocBuildFiles.zip in it.
    14    
    15   To build the librarys goto "epoc" directory and type:
    16     bldmake bldfiles
    17     abld makefile vc6 (for creating Microsoft Visual C++ makefiles)
    18     abld build wins udeb (building for wins emulator)
    19     abld build armi urel (building for real device)
    20 
    21 ==============================================================================
    22 II. Building the Simple DirectMedia Layer programs:
    23 
    24   Building SDL test programs is easy once you have built the libraries:
    25     abld test build wins udeb
    26     abld test build armi urel
    27 
    28   Supported real screen resolutions
    29     320 x 200 x  8 bit
    30     320 x 200 x 12 bit
    31     640 x 200 x  8 bit
    32     640 x 200 x 12 bit
    33   Supported "emulated" screen resolutions 
    34     640 x 400 x  8 bit
    35     640 x 400 x 12 bit
    36     640 x 480 x  8 bit
    37     640 x 480 x 12 bit
    38   "Emulated" resolutions are implemented by by shrinking the screen vertically 
    39   i.e. only every second scanline is drawn. This is mainly ment to be used for 
    40   testing quick ports of programs. Using faked resolutions is a waste of memory 
    41   and cpu power!
    42 
    43 ==============================================================================
    44 III. Running test programs
    45 
    46   Copy executable to the device and run it from the File manager.   The Esc 
    47   key quits demo programs. In Crystal, Exe programs do not appear in task list 
    48   nor in Extras :-(. Test programs are tested in Nokia 9210 Communicator.
    49 
    50   Special keys used in SDL:
    51     The Caps lock key enables or disables the virtual cursor. 
    52     Function keys are mapped as follows: 
    53     F1=chr+q, F2=chr+w,..., F8=chr+i, 
    54     F9=chr+a,..., F12=chr+d.
    55 
    56 ==============================================================================
    57 IV.  Enjoy! :)
