tracehook: get_signal_to_deliver
Roland McGrath [Sat, 26 Jul 2008 02:45:53 +0000 (19:45 -0700)]
This defines the tracehook_get_signal() hook to allow tracing code to slip
in before normal signal dequeuing.  This lays the groundwork for new
tracing features that can inject synthetic signals outside the normal
queue or control the disposition of delivered signals.  The calling
convention lets tracehook_get_signal() decide both exactly what will
happen and what signal number to report in the handler/exit.
