One question: Looking at the Linux kernel oplock
implementation we get the information which fd the kernel
wants us to release via the siginfo_t->sig_fd handler in the
three-argument signal handler set via sigaction with

Also, looking at my "Stevens, advanced Unix programming"
using the signal() syscall on some platforms can lead to
lost signals. Probably modern glibc implements this using
sigaction, so this would not be a problem here, but it might
on others. Is this use of signal() instead of sigaction()
deliberate, or is Stevens just wrong here?
