Subject[PATCH] exec: make de_thread alloc new signal struct earlier
Date
It was pointed out that de_thread may return -ENOMEM
when it already terminated threads, and returning
an error from execve, except when a fatal signal is
being delivered is not an option any more.

Allocate the memory for the signal table earlier,
and make sure that -ENOMEM is returned before the
unrecoverable actions are started.

Eric, what do you think, might this be helpful
to move the "point of no return" lower, and simplify
your patch?
