These patches add a segfault handler and custom assertion handler that restore
the terminal before exiting. The first patch also displays a backtrace.

The backtrace-less patch only increased the nano binary by 32 bytes and would
 be nice to have in case nano ever segfaults in normal use or when testing.

But this also does an endwin(), which means that it wipes all of nano and
its content from the screen and restores the terminal to what it looked
like before nano started.  I don't think I would like that.  I want to see
the content of the screen at the point that nano crashed.
