linux-user: Use safe_syscall for kill, tkill and tgkill syscalls
Use the safe_syscall wrapper for the kill, tkill and tgkill syscalls. Without this, if a thread sent a SIGKILL to itself it could kill the thread before we had a chance to process a signal that arrived just before the SIGKILL, and that signal would get lost. We drop all the ifdeffery for tkill and tgkill, because every guest architecture we support implements them, and they've been in Linux since 2003 so we can assume the host headers define the __NR_tkill and __NR_tgkill constants. Signed-off-by: Peter Maydell <peter.maydell@linaro.org> --- Timothy's patchset used block_signals() for this, but I think safe_syscall is nicer when it can be used, since it's lower overhead and less intrusive. Also extended to cover all the thread-killing syscalls rather than just kill.
