Portability is not an issue when your system call is actually interrupted. :-)

The complexity that arises from mixing signals and threads is only justified if you have specific reasons to implement it like that. By default, a multi-threaded process acts the same as a non-threaded process when interrupted.

So, unless you have specific reasons for defining per-thread signal masks (which is possible), there's nothing special about the multi-threaded case.
