Create a safe wrapper by protecting the signal mask.

Instead of doing a simple passthrough of the sigprocmask, the wrapper
manipulates the signal mask in a safe way for the qemu internal. This
is done by avoiding SIGSEGV bit mask manipulation from the guest.

We also return the same bit on the SIGSEGV. This is not required for
most applications, but if the application checks it, then it will see
that somethings fishy about it (and, in fact, maybe it should). If we
do not want the guest to be aware of those manipulations, then it should
be implemented in another way, but this seems quite clean and consistent.

The wrapper can be improved to add more features for better signal
managing, but this seems enough for "simple" self-modifying code.
