Subject[PATCH 01/10] signal: fix SIGCONT notification code
After a task receives SIGCONT, its parent is notified via SIGCHLD with
its siginfo describing what the notified event is. If SIGCONT is
received while the child process is stopped, the code should be
CLD_CONTINUED. If SIGCONT is recieved while the child process is in
the process of being stopped, it should be CLD_STOPPED. Which code to
use is determined in prepare_signal() and recorded in signal->flags

get_signal_deliver() should test these flags and then notify
accoringly; however, it incorrectly tested SIGNAL_STOP_CONTINUED
instead of SIGNAL_CLD_CONTINUED, thus incorrectly notifying
CLD_CONTINUED if the signal is delivered before the task is wait(2)ed
and CLD_STOPPED if the state was fetched already.

Fix it by testing SIGNAL_CLD_CONTINUED. While at it, uncompress the
?: test into if/else clause for better readability.
