SubjectRe: more signal locking bugs?

Ok, I committed this alternative change, which isn't quite as minimal, but
looks a lot cleaner to me.

Also, looking at execve() and other paths, we do seem to have sufficient
protection from the tasklist_lock that signal delivery should be fine. So
despite a long and confused thread, I think in the end the only real bug
was the one Martin found which should be thus fixed..
