This seems sensible to me.

I have a patch in our tree which changes the signal delivery mechanism
for aio completion to use the well known pipe-to-self trick.  I had to
do this because there were some circumstances where IO completion
signals were being lost due to races.

I was planning to send this upstream.  Should I enhance my change to
do the same to the termination signals too ?
