[vdr] Process id in syslog

Before the conversion to NPTL, the syslog entries showed
the pid of each individual thread, so that it was easy to
tell which thread had issued a particular message.

Now, with NPTL, all VDR syslog entries have the same pid,
which is that of the foreground thread. This is pretty
useless, because in case of a problem it's important
to know exactly which thread has issued which message.

Since I couldn't find any information on this, maybe somebody
here knows how openlog() needs to be called in order to have
the individual thread pids displayed in syslog messages on
an NPTL system.
