     A function that is async-signal-safe is either reentrant or non-inter-
     ruptible by signals.  This means that they can be used in signal handlers
     and in the child of threaded programs after doing fork(2).

     The following functions are async-signal-safe.  Any function not listed
     below is unsafe to use in signal handlers.

STANDARDS
     These signals conform to ISO/IEC 9945-1:1990 (``POSIX.1''), with the
     exception of SIGTRAP, SIGEMT, SIGBUS, SIGSYS, SIGURG, SIGIO, SIGXCPU,
     SIGXFSZ, SIGVTALRM, SIGPROF, SIGWINCH, and SIGINFO which are Berkeley
     extensions (available on most BSD-derived systems), and SIGPWR which
     comes from System V.

HISTORY
     SIGPWR was introduced in NetBSD 1.4.

NOTES
     The current NetBSD kernel never generates the SIGPWR signal.
