SubjectRe: [PATCH 1/3] signals: sigqueue_free: don't free sigqueue if it is queued

That is correct behavior. Signals < SIGRTMIN do not queue. (POSIX says
it's implementation-defined whether they do, and in Linux they don't.)
When a signal does not queue, it's unspecified whether the the one that
is ever actually seen is the first one or the last one (or any in between),
so the siginfo_t details showing the second one in your example is fine.


Thanks,
Roland
