    jobs: Only clear gotsigchld when waiting for everything

    The gotsigchld flag is always cleared in dowait but not all callers
    of dowait will wait for everything.  In particular, when jp is set
    we only wait until the set job isn't running anymore.

    This patch fixes this by only clearing gotsigchld if jp is unset.
    It also changes the waitcmd to actually set jp which corresponds
    to the behaviour of bash/ksh93/mksh.

    The only other caller of dowait that doesn't wait for everything
    is the jobless reaper.  This is in fact redundant now that we wait
    after every simple command.  This patch removes it.

    Finally as every caller of dowait needs to wait until either the
    given job is not running, or until all terminated jobs have been
    processed, this patch moves the loop into dowait itself.
