posix timers: discard SI_TIMER signals on exec
Based on Roland's patch. This approach was suggested by Austin Clements from the very beginning, and then by Linus. As Austin pointed out, the execing task can be killed by SI_TIMER signal because exec flushes the signal handlers, but doesn't discard the pending signals generated by posix timers. Perhaps not a bug, but people find this surprising.
