Hm, yes. What happens is we come back out of the select() immediately
because of the pending signal, but on the way back to userspace we put
the old signal mask back... so by the time we check for it, there _is_
no (unblocked) signal pending.

If it's mandatory that we actually call the signal handler, then we need
to play tricks like sigsuspend() does to leave the old signal mask on
the stack frame. That's a bit painful atm because do_signal is different
between architectures.
