PTRACE_SETSIGMASK isn't used on restore. On restore, criu generates
sigframe and calls sigreturn to restore registers, fpu state, sigmask
and resume a process.  When the kernel constructs a signal frame, it
calls sigmask_to_save() to get a process signal mask. With this patch,
PTRACE_GETSIGMASK returns the same signal mask what is returned by

In CRIU, we don't need to set TIF_RESTORE_SIGMASK, because all processes
are dumped when they are in user-space.

CRIU uses PTRACE_SETSIGMASK when it injects a parasite code into a
target process. In this case, we have to be sure that when the process
is resumed by PTRACE_CONT, it will not start handling signals and
executing signal handlers.

If we set child->saved_sigmask, the child can start handling signals
which are not set in child->blocked.
