Yes. As mentioned, this was seldom used.

In some cases it's ok, eg aio would just specify the signal in
sigev_signo (except it was never fleshed out to have sival_ptr etc
because nobody ever did it, afaik).

Yeah, in several cases you would just want to signal a handler
directly, not an index into handlers.

Anyway, I'm just saying that the whole "reap children" part is not
necessarily tied to the pidfd thing. And honestly, nobody ever does
anything like that anyway in practice, because of all the other issues
it causes that you'll hit.
