Neither B_ERROR nor -1 is an invalid semaphore. The former is an error code
the latter is a signed integer.

const sem_id invalid_semaphore = -1;

...and then we can have:

return invalid_semaphore;

and nobody needs to ask what was the original author's intention.
Obviously, it would be even better if implicit casts between sem_id and
integers were disallowed but that would break things like if (sem < B_OK) in
C code.

I'm not sure where that define should go -- and all I was doing here
was making this specific instance of RetraceSemaphore() be exactly the
same as the other 4 instances that all return -1.
