Bug Description

kill11 from ubuntu_ltp_syscalls is always timing out when executed by autotest. It never fails when executed manually from a regular command line session.

The reason is that python overwrites the signal handler for SIGXFSZ, blocking the delivery of this signal to any forked task, causing kill11 to time out.

[Test case]
$ sudo ./autotest/client/autotest-local autotest/client/tests/ubuntu_ltp_syscalls/control

Check that kill11 is failing (timing out).


Fix by restoring the default signal handler of SIGXFSZ before running the test.

[Regression potential]

None. We should actually consider to apply a more generic change, so that all test won't be affected by the same problem.
