Memory allocation in signal handler introduced by causes a segfault when compiled with HAVE_STRUCT_SIGINFO_T.

To reproduce, run `php test.php` in one terminal, and run `while true; do pkill -n -SIGTERM php; done` in another terminal. PHP will eventually segfault.

Sample stack trace:

Test script:

declare(ticks = 1);
pcntl_signal(SIGTERM, function() {
    echo "signal\n";

$c = 0;
while(1) {
    $c += 1;
    str_repeat('a', 8192) . $c;

Expected result:
no segfault

Actual result:
