[PATCH] Fix cross reference to nonexistent node BSD Handler in signal.texi


I'm running into this glibc build error:
default/manual//signal.texi:2142: Cross reference to nonexistent node `BSD Handler' (perhaps incorrect sectioning?).

I suspect this is due to this change in commit 0781a7772ae1385fe8d7a734fdb35df81b1e6590 ( ):
+	* manual/signal.texi (BSD Handler): Remove subsection.
+	Move siginterrupt up to ...
+	(BSD Signal Handling): ... here.  Mark it as XPG rather than BSD.
+	(Blocking in BSD): Fold subsection into its parent.

Attached patch fixes it, by referring to 'BSD Signal Handling' instead.

Tested by finishing the glibc build.

OK to apply?
