Some users of the 'fatal-signal' module want to block / unblock
not only the fatal signals, but also some other signals. Of course
a single sigaction() call is preferred to multiple ones. For this use-case,
it makes sense to add an accessor for the list of signals.

This accessor returns a list of signals, not a sigset_t, because it is not
clear to me, reading POSIX, whether cloning a sigset_t by simple assignment
is allowed. (Maybe POSIX allows a sigset_t to contain embedded pointers?)
Also, iterating through a list of 5 or 6 elements is probably more efficient
than iterating through a bitmap of 256 or 1024 bits.
