/* Emacs should avoid doing anything hairy in a signal handler, because
so many system functions are non-reentrant. For example, malloc
and the Xlib functions aren't usually re-entrant, so if they were
used by the SIGIO handler, we'd lose.
To avoid this, we make the following requirements:
* Everyone must evaluate BLOCK_INPUT before performing actions that
might conflict with a signal handler, and then call UNBLOCK_INPUT
after performing them. Calls BLOCK_INPUT and UNBLOCK_INPUT may be
nested.
* Any complicated interrupt handling code should test
INPUT_BLOCKED_P, and put off its work until later.
* If the interrupt handling code wishes, it may set
pending_signals to a non-zero value. If that flag is set
when input becomes unblocked, UNBLOCK_INPUT will then read
input and process timers.
Historically, Emacs signal handlers did much more than they do now,
and this caused many BLOCK_INPUT calls to be sprinkled around the code.
FIXME: Remove calls that aren't needed now. */
