in thread receive siginfo for real time signals.

Hmm... but, if this signal handler setup looks mostly safe, then why perl internal signal handler are so complex, even for unsafe signals?

    I'm afraid that question doesn't make a lot of sense to me. But if you're asking what I think you're asking: It's because signal handling for unsafe signals calls Perl subroutines, and for safe signals, it sets multiple flags checked during OP running.
