A first cut of the libc-based implementation, using a (new) syscall to
get/set the signal its is available, and can be found here:
http://www.gsicomp.on.ca/~matt/dfly/ (rev3, bottom of page)

Note that this implementation is not complete, as it is missing the userland
get/set_mcontext code.  I'm sure I've also missed some nuance wrt signal
handling (locking, ordering, etc) in the design and use of the new sigmask
