If my sig-stack patch is there please remove it. It was incomplete
and I am waiting for 2.1 (patiently) to do a solid implementation.
The patch did support forking but it didn't adequately handle
quite a few things.

I had wanted to support mmapping the alt-stack as a GROWSDOWN
area so you could have a sig-stack that grows, and lots of other
stuff, but the patch was half-hearted since I was assured it
wouldn't go in 2.0.
