Actually thread and process ID's are positive values. Accorting to
http://man7.org/linux/man-pages/man7/pthreads.7.html
threads are creating using "clone" syscall, so the ID generation mechanism
is similar for threads and processes. According to Linux source code
there is a function call tree, which allocates  PID[TID]:
clone
 |->_do_fork
    |->copy_process
      |->alloc_pid
        |->idr_alloc_cyclic
          |->idr_alloc_u32(idr, ptr, &id, max, gfp);
And in idr_alloc_u32() "id" is u32 value, which means positiveness.
Also according to:
https://elixir.bootlin.com/linux/latest/source/kernel/pid.c#L177
PID cannot be less than 1.

In Zephyr RTOS the k_thread_create function returns
thread ID which is actually pointer to k_thread structure.
If the memory addressing starts from 0x80000000, passing such
big values to write_ptid() leads to overflow of "int tid" variable
and thread ID becomes negative.
So lets remove the code, which handles negative tid/pid values.

gdb/ChangeLog:

2019-11-06  Evgeniy Didin <didin@synopsys.com>

        * remote.c (remote_target::write_ptid):  Remove handling
         negative tid,pid. Change "int" to uint32_t for pid/tid.
