RTEMS does not have ualarm() now but it is trivial to add and
seems useful. It certainly places no imposition on the
underlying infrastructure. Everything you need is already there.

OK. So we are just close to being in sync. :)
Is there a standard or proposed standard for this? Where did
it come from?
Bottom line, if this is going in cygwin, we will add it to
provide at least that level of compatability. But we want to
know its origin.
