I tested this change using kselftest framework,
In this case, the timeout command sent a SIGTERM signal,
and then ctrlc_handler() was triggered.
Since the handling of SIGINT and SIGHUP signals is overridden in run_fill_buf(),
ctrl_handler() may be called if ctrl-c is received.

I think removing ctrl_handler() is fine.
In CAT test, it overrides ctrlc_handler().
In other tests(CMT,MBA,MBM), the child process used ctrl_handler() to cleanup itself,
but the parent process cleanup the child process with ctrlc_handler() properly.
Also, avoid using signal().
fill_buf.c:run_fill_buf()
201 /* set up ctrl-c handler */
202 if (signal(SIGINT, ctrl_handler) == SIG_ERR)
203 printf("Failed to catch SIGINT!\n");

I removed ctrl_handler() and ran resctrl_tests with and without the kselftest framework.
There is no problem.

Best regards,
Shaopeng Tan
