Cygwin: fhandler_termios::tcsetpgrp: check that argument is non-negative

Return -1 with EINVAL if pgid < 0.

Previously tcsetpgrp() would blindly go ahead and set the pgid of the
controlling terminal to a negative value, causing later calls to
various functions to fail.

For example, gdb has code like the following:

  tcsetpgrp (0, getpgid (inf->pid));

If getpgid (inf->pid) fails (returns -1), then this code would set the
pgid of fd 0 to -1, so that some later calls to getpgid() would also
return -1.  This caused the problem reported here:
