As reported in http://savannah.gnu.org/patch/?8025 , I would like to see the
SIGRTMAX-n signal names disappear.

Signals should never ever be addressed with SIGRTMAX-n. Signals should always be
addressed with SIGRTMIN+n.

programs should never refer to real-time signals using hard-coded numbers, but
instead should always refer to real-time signals using the notation SIGRTMIN+n

This patch makes the SIGRTMIN+n notation the default, but understands the old
SIGRTMAX-n notation as well.
