Thank you for doing this.
I think you also want to catch SR_handler - this is our suspend/resume handler. Today this is on
linux and bsd. An upcoming change will use that handler for more than just the VM Thread, and will support it on Solaris as well.
Copying Rickard/Staffan who will want to extend this change for the Solaris SR_handler when it arrives.

Thank you for reporting what tests you ran. UTE tests - could you be more specific, that is just the framework.
We have some existing signal tests in the vmsqe tests - see runtime/signal/*.
