Maybe we should do the above in a separate patch?

Hmmm... it probably depends on POV but wouldn't (exit_signal != -1 &&
exit_signal != SIGCHLD) be easier? The logic here is about demoting
specials sigs to SIGCHLD under certain circumstances and the check is
there to prevent promoting -1 to SIGCHLD. I agree the detached() is
more distracting than helping but thread_group_leader() seems
unnecessarily indirect.
