overhaul implementation-internal signal protections

the new approach relies on the fact that the only ways to create
sigset_t objects without invoking UB are to use the sig*set()
functions, or from the masks returned by sigprocmask, sigaction, etc.
or in the ucontext_t argument to a signal handler. thus, as long as
sigfillset and sigaddset avoid adding the "protected" signals, there
is no way the application will ever obtain a sigset_t including these
bits, and thus no need to add the overhead of checking/clearing them
when sigprocmask or sigaction is called.

note that the old code actually *failed* to remove the bits from
sa_mask when sigaction was called.

the new implementations are also significantly smaller, simpler, and
faster due to ignoring the useless "GNU HURD signals" 65-1024, which
are not used and, if there's any sanity in the world, never will be

completely new barrier implementation, addressing major correctness issues

the previous implementation had at least 2 problems:

1. the case where additional threads reached the barrier before the
first wave was finished leaving the barrier was untested and seemed
not to be working.

2. threads leaving the barrier continued to access memory within the
barrier object after other threads had successfully returned from
pthread_barrier_wait. this could lead to memory corruption or crashes
if the barrier object had automatic storage in one of the waiting
threads and went out of scope before all threads finished returning,
or if one thread unmapped the memory in which the barrier object

the new implementation avoids both problems by making the barrier
state essentially local to the first thread which enters the barrier
wait, and forces that thread to be the last to return.

Smoothsort is an adaptive variant of heapsort. This version was

implementation, but roughly 20 times faster given an almost-sorted
array of 1M elements (20 being the base-2 log of 1M), i.e. it really
does reduce O(n log n) to O(n) in the mostly-sorted case. It's still

considerably faster than glibc when the input is already sorted, or
