POSIX says it's supposed to be safe:
"As it bypasses the usual function call and return mechanisms,
longjmp() shall execute correctly in contexts of interrupts, signals,
and any of their associated functions. However, if longjmp() is
invoked from a nested signal handler (that is, from a function
invoked as a result of a signal raised during the handling of another
signal), the behavior is undefined."
