A second mailboxed signal with a different number. Eg: you make a
syscall, the syscall returns EINTR and you go to check what's on
the mailbox, but before being able to read what's on the mailbox
an other signal gets delivered, so when you actually want to
look at the mailbox you would be reading the second signal instead
of the first one.
