/* This is a support interface to make it easier to handle signals.
 * The interfaces here support one (and only one) thread (here called
 * "main thread") in the application to monitor several signals while
 * selecting on filedescriptors.
 * First, the main thread should call npth_sigev_init.  This
 * initializes some global data structures used to record interesting
 * and pending signals.
 * Then, the main thread should call npth_sigev_add for every signal
 * it is interested in observing, and finally npth_sigev_fini.  This
 * will block the signal in the main threads sigmask.  Note that these
 * signals should also be blocked in all other threads.  Since they
 * are blocked in the main thread after calling npth_sigev_add, it is
 * recommended to call npth_sigev_add in the main thread before
 * creating any threads.
 * The function npth_sigev_sigmask is a convenient function that
 * returns the sigmask of the thread at time of npth_sigev_init, but
 * with all registered signals unblocked.  It is recommended to do all
 * other changes to the main thread's sigmask before calling
 * npth_sigev_init, so that the return value of npth_sigev_sigmask can
 * be used in the npth_pselect invocation.
 * In any case, the main thread should invoke npth_pselect with a
 * sigmask that has all signals that should be monitored unblocked.
 * After npth_pselect returns, npth_sigev_get_pending can be called in
 * a loop until it returns 0 to iterate over the list of pending
 * signals.  Each time a signal is returned by that function, its
 * status is reset to non-pending.
