POSIX signal handling



Sergios,

I meant to ask.. Is it ok to include this in the RTEMS examples
as a simple example of alarm and signals?

From what I've read in rtems-users and user docs, no problems should arise from using POSIX asynchronous signal handling in RTEMS, so my guess is I'm making some na?ve mistake on code or configuration...

Alike the other tests, in RTEMS the handler never gets to run (although the signal (SIGALRM) is seen pending); in Linux all tests will work.
