No (but it has the better event notification mechanism, I think). But
tgt has the proper workaround for signalfd in util.h. If systems don't
support signalfd (old linux kernels, bsd, etc), tgt uses the pthread
notification mechanism.

I guess that simply backing to pthread_kill is the easiest way. But
it's fine by me if you like to add some tricks like signalfd does.

btw, sorry for the delay to merge your pthread work. I like to fix the
tmf issue that Takahashi hit before that.
