memcg: enable accounting for signals
When a user send a signal to any another processes it forces the kernel to allocate memory for 'struct sigqueue' objects. The number of signals is limited by RLIMIT_SIGPENDING resource limit, but even the default settings allow each user to consume up to several megabytes of memory. It makes sense to account for these allocations to restrict the host's memory consumption from inside the memcg-limited container.
