Sorry I didn't answer earlier, but it turns out almost all the busybox
messages are going in my spam folder :( This is fixed; busybox is on
the whitelist.

I don't want to support the absence of SA_RESTART. With my
configuration I will never call signal_SA_RESTART_empty_mask(), so I
just need to get signals.c compiling.

It was easier to patch signal_SA_RESTART_empty_mask() than to keep track
of all new instances of SA_RESTART. sSRem() is not called that much.

But I sent this patch out to get feedback. I think I have another way
to fix this, so this patch can be safely dropped.
