If I add a signal handler for SIGINT it is called when pselect()
returns regardless of the return value.

If I setup SIGUSR1/2 the same way as SIGINT and get the SIGINT
handler to sighold() and then raise both of them, the USR1/2
handlers are both called on the next pselect() call.
(Without the extra sighold() the handlers are called when kill()

I'd expect the epoll functions to work the same way.

sigtimedwait is different though - it returns the number of the
pending signal (and doesn't call the handler).
So if two signals are pending neither handler should be called.
The second signal would be returned on the following sigtimedwait call.
