signal: add block_sigmask() for adding sigmask to current->blocked

Abstract the code sequence for adding a signal handler's sa_mask to
current->blocked because the sequence is identical for all architectures.
Furthermore, in the past some architectures actually got this code wrong,
so introduce a wrapper that all architectures can use.
