Please do not cross-post to several mailing lists. In this case actually
tech-kern@ might be a good place to ask, but it is not clear, so we can
just continue discussion here.

I don't think exposing the bounds to userland is enough to fix the issue,
we need to check that we have all parts implemented for 

	2.4.2 Realtime Signal Generation and Delivery

and we don't, see "man 3 sigevent" and search for SIGEV_THREAD.

So this is a non-trivial fix (Christos would know better how hard it actually
is to implement), and a good step for your project would be to examine the
current state and write a PR describing the bits we are missing.

Then either, as you go along with other stuff, somebody (Christos?),
will fill the missing parts, or in the end this part will (for now) stay
