Ok good start.  Let's add more things in the queue (or split it into
separate tests) to show that:
	- realtime signals are ordered properly
	- you can queue more than one realtime signal
	- don't use sighold/sigrelse. these are obsolete and release
	  only one signal at a time. use sigprocmask (plus since you are
	  releasing them one at a time, the release order is the order
	  you are going to see them delivered.

Then we can turn it into an ATF test.
