fix signal safety of _set_processing_status() #574

The __set_processing_status() function may be called from sig_handler() and has potential uses of signal-unsafe fprintf() either directly, via safe_close() or via Reporter::Error().

First/easiest thing that comes to mind is to call write() directly instead of fprintf(), call close() instead of safe_close() (but do similar error handling that instead uses write()), and just drop the use of Reporter.

set_processing_status can be called before reporter is initialized or
after it is deleted. Work around by sending data to stderr instead.
