I apologize for keeping asking, but David Xu mentioned before that 
signal can also be delivered at the same time and pthread_cond_signal 
will exit. Normally its EINTR (like for open(2)). But now you are saying 
that EINTR isn't allowed for pthread_cond_signal. So does this mean that 
signal can't be delivered during pthread_cond_signal, or it will just 
return 0? In the latter case, how can I distinguish signal delivery and 
successful return?
