Is the name SIGINFO already well established.

It just is a little bit confusing with struct siginfo.

At least on x86 it looks like we have signals 32 and 33 that are
reserved and not used for anything. Is there a reason you have
not picked one of those?

Also should this be a realtime signal with signal information
or a non-realtime signal?

I don't expect there is much to encode except that the user is asking
for information. I half wonder if it could be done as a different
si_code to SIGWINCH. But of course that doesn't work because it is
not a real time signal so does not queue more than one siginfo. (Sigh).

I just would like to see that we have a clear concept of how this new
signal plays into all of the signal handling bits.

Added linux-api because this is fundamentally extending the linux-api,
and we probably want man-page updates etc.
