Linus, Andrew, the following patch set has been discussed and reviewed on LKML for quite a while and has reached its final state. It implements sys_rt_tgsigqueueinfo which allows to queue signals to a particulart thread. It's the counterpart for sys_rt_sigqueueinfo and complements the sys_kill / sys_tgkill interface pair. While I think that the ability to target a particular thread is useful itself the lack of this interface is a serious show stopper for migrating existing applications from other Unix like OSes which provide this. The new syscall interface is acked by Ulrich and the implementation has been reviewed by Oleg and acked by Roland. Please apply.
