OK, but first someone must explain to me what the signal is being used for. Then I will try to come up with a design that doesn't require a signal to perform this function. Usually, in the past, what I've seen is signals being used for timeouts. This is easily avoided by using select/poll (which have timeout parameters) before calling read/write instead of blocking in read/write.
