    Vale, this fixes your testcase you sent. Attached below for reference.

    P.S. Sorry about one of the cc email addresses in the first email; I succumbed
    to a silly practical joke unwittingly so you'll have to remove it when
    replying to all.

    /* gcc -o hog smallhog.c */
    #include <time.h>
    #include <limits.h>
    #include <signal.h>
    #include <sys/time.h>
    #define HIST 10

    static sig_atomic_t stop;

    static void sighandler (int signr)
    {
    (void) signr;
    stop = 1;
    }
    static unsigned long hog (unsigned long niters)
    {
    stop = 0;
    while (!stop && --niters);
    return niters;
    }
    int main (void)
    {
    int i;
    struct itimerval it = { .it_interval = { .tv_sec = 0, .tv_usec = 1 },
    .it_value = { .tv_sec = 0, .tv_usec = 1 } };
    sigset_t set;
    unsigned long v[HIST];
    double tmp = 0.0;
    unsigned long n;
    signal (SIGALRM, &sighandler);
    setitimer (ITIMER_REAL, &it, NULL);

    for (i = 0; i < HIST; ++i) v[i] = ULONG_MAX - hog (ULONG_MAX);
    for (i = 0; i < HIST; ++i) tmp += v[i];
    tmp /= HIST;
    n = tmp - (tmp / 3.0);

    sigemptyset (&set);
    sigaddset (&set, SIGALRM);

    for (;;) {
    hog (n);
    sigwait (&set, &i);
    }
    return 0;
    }
