Reference to nonexistent node `Threads and Signal Handling'.

When building the documentation for i386-gnu, makeinfo gives me:

signal.texi:2568: Cross reference to nonexistent node `Threads and
Signal Handling'.

This node appears to exist only in linuxthreads, so I suspect the
reference should just be removed.

        * manual/signal.texi (Process Signal Mask): Remove reference to
        Threads and Signal Handling.  That node only exists in
        linuxthreads.texi which is not used on all platforms.

learning from failures is nice in theory...
but in practice, it sucks :)
