Yes, that's expected. The event if for the queue, not directed to a
specific thread.

If in future we want to think about preferably waking a specific thread
we can then think about it. But I doubt that'll be beneficial. The
thread specific part in the signal handling is only used to implement
the SIGEV_THREAD notification.
