gVisor PTYs must implement job control and related features. These include sessions, foreground/background processes, and signal handling.

At this point there is basic job control support implemented by #585 and #803. Closing this in favor of bugs like #422 that track specific features.

#6148 has been created to track the specific TODO still referring to this bug.
