Actually, I now wonder if that should be die_errno instead.
sigprocmask failures (EFAULT/EINVAL) would only be due
to programmer error.

In one of my minor projects(*), I do something like this:

# define CHECK(type, expect, expr) do { \
	type checkvar = (expr); \
	assert(checkvar == (expect) && "BUG" && __FILE__ && __LINE__); \
	} while (0)

	CHECK(int, 0, sigfillset(&fullset));
	CHECK(int, 0, sigemptyset(&emptyset));
	CHECK(int, 0, pthread_sigmask(SIG_SETMASK, &fullset, NULL));

Dunno if it's considered good style or not, here.
