The signature of native_stop_timer_thread at

This was introduced in r32244 by Koichi Sasada. Assigning it to him.

Sasada-san, seems the signature change in thread_win32.c is missing, the following patch solves the compilation but I'm unsure the extend of the needed changes:

diff --git a/thread_win32.c b/thread_win32.c
