In the LTP Test suite (ltp-full-20050608) to test linux
system calls, test program alarm04 executable tests if
the SIGNAL is transfered to the execed process.
According to the manpage of execve [Distro SLES 9]
"Signals Pending in the calling process is cleared". So
alarm04 test features which is not supported in the
latest kernel. So let me know if the test is relevent
with respect to linux kernels 2.6.13 and above
