Defer ptracestop() signals that cannot be delivered immediately

Description

Defer ptracestop() signals that cannot be delivered immediately

When a thread is stopped in ptracestop(), the ptrace(2) user may request
a signal be delivered upon resumption of the thread. Heretofore, those signals
were discarded unless ptracestop()'s caller was issignal(). Fix this by
modifying ptracestop() to queue up signals requested by the ptrace user that
will be delivered when possible. Take special care when the signal is SIGKILL
(usually generated from a PT_KILL request); no new stop events should be
triggered after a PT_KILL.

Add a number of tests for the new functionality. Several tests were authored
by jhb.
