actually a lot of the comment is taken from signal(3). ;)

i don't think however signals should be explained merely in one manual. sigaction(2) e.g. also documents the signals. so i thought having a brief explanation of the signals in signal.h would be helpful. plus as you said it gets rid of some of the individual signal-comments.
