Yes, ERESTARTxxx should not be visible to the user-space. But it is OK
to return it from the syscall if signal_pending() is true, in this case
it will be changed to EINTR or the system call will be restarted.

ERESTARTNOINTR always restarts the syscall, perphaps after handling the
signal if it is really pending.

Ah, indeed, thanks.
