    jobs - Do not block when waiting on SIGCHLD

    Because of the nature of SIGCHLD, the process may have already been
    waited on and therefore we must be prepared for the case that wait
    may block.  So ensure that it doesn't by using WNOHANG.

    Furthermore, multiple jobs may have exited when gotsigchld is set.
    Therefore we need to wait until there are no zombies left.

    Lastly, waitforjob needs to be called with interrupts off and
    the original patch broke that.

While at it, removed INT_ON/OFF in waitforjob() - it must be called
from INT_OFF region anyway.
