PR_SET_KILLABLE clears the SIGNAL_UNKILLABLE flag. This allows
CLONE_NEWPID tasks to restore normal signal behavior, opting out of the
special signal protection for init processes.

This is required for job control in a shell that uses CLONE_NEWPID for
child processes.

This prctl does not allow setting the SIGNAL_UNKILLABLE flag, only
clearing.
