/*
* Possible future strategy for implementing pthread_kill()
* ========================================================
*
* Win32 does not implement signals.
* Signals are simply software interrupts.
* pthread_kill() asks the system to deliver a specified
* signal (interrupt) to a specified thread in the same
* process.
* Signals are always asynchronous (no deferred signals).
* Pthread-win32 has an async cancellation mechanism.
* A similar system can be written to deliver signals
* within the same process (on ix86 processors at least).
*
* Each thread maintains information about which
* signals it will respond to. Handler routines
* are set on a per-process basis - not per-thread.
* When signalled, a thread will check it's sigmask
* and, if the signal is not being ignored, call the
* handler routine associated with the signal. The
* thread must then (except for some signals) return to
* the point where it was interrupted.
*
* Ideally the system itself would check the target thread's
* mask before possibly needlessly bothering the thread
* itself. This could be done by pthread_kill(), that is,
* in the signaling thread since it has access to
* all pthread_t structures. It could also retrieve
* the handler routine address to minimise the target
* threads response overhead. This may also simplify
* serialisation of the access to the per-thread signal
* structures.
*
* pthread_kill() eventually calls a routine similar to
* ptw32_cancel_thread() which manipulates the target
* threads processor context to cause the thread to
* run the handler launcher routine. pthread_kill() must
* save the target threads current context so that the
* handler launcher routine can restore the context after
* the signal handler has returned. Some handlers will not
* return, eg. the default SIGKILL handler may simply
* call pthread_exit().
*
* The current context is saved in the target threads
* pthread_t structure.
