Thanks Martin letting me know the problems in the patch.
I will read the documents recommended by you carefully.
Let me know if you have specific requirements for those signals in kernel
For me, my principle is to fix bugs in posix test suite and do necessary
work in kernel.
Those two signals are just guards (the range for reliable or non-reliable
So, before reading your docs, I will guess exposing to userland is enough.
Also thanks Ngie letting me know the github version of the benchmark.
