This is the second revision to the patch set to replace signal(2) with
sigaction(2) [1].

As Johannes pointed out [2], replacing signal with sigaction would break
MinGW compatibility.  The first patch in this series addresses this
problem by expanding the faux sigaction function in compat/mingw.c to
support signals other than just SIGALRM.  Details are in the patch

The second patch is a proof of concept.  It converts signal to sigaction
in a case where signal SIGCHILD was used.  Previously this would have
failed with MinGW since the faux sigaction function only supported
SIGALRM.  Now it works as expected.

I have tested these changes under Linux and under Windows 7 using Msysgit.
