rts_checkSchedStatus: exit the thread, not the process, when Interrupted

This means that when the process is shutting down, if we have calls to
foreign exports in progress, they get forcibly terminated as before,
but now they only shut down the calling thread rather than the whole
process (with -threaded).

This came up in a discussion started by Akio Takano on ghc-users.
