SubjectRe: [PATCH] fix sigqueue accounting for posix-timers broken by new RLIMIT_SIGPENDING tracking code

Are you sure? IOW, are you seeing a leak of the count? The sigqueue
structure has a lifetime the same as the timer, IIRC. So each time the
signal is sent/received there's no accounting, because it's reused.
But timer create/delete does sigqueue_alloc -> __sigqueue_alloc which
does the inc. and sigqueue_free -> __sigqueue_free which does the dec.
I'm fairly sure I had tested this.
