    LINUX: Fix includes for fatal_signal_pending test
    Commit 8b6ae289 (LINUX: Avoid lookup ENOENT on fatal signals) added a
    configure test for fatal_signal_pending(). However, this check fails
    incorrectly ever since Linux 4.11, because fatal_signal_pending() was moved
    from linux/sched.h to linux/sched/signal.h in Linux commit 2a1f062a
    (sched/headers: Move signal wakeup [...]). Fix this by including
    linux/sched/signal.h if we have it during the configure test.
    A false negative on this configure test doesn't break the build, but
    it disables one of our safeguards preventing incorrect negative
    dentries at runtime. The function fatal_signal_pending() hasn't
    changed in quite some time (except for what header it lives in); it
    was introduced in Linux 2.6.25 via Linux commit f776d12d (Add
    fatal_signal_pending). So to try to avoid this mistake again in the
    future, make it so a missing fatal_signal_pending() breaks the build
    if we're on Linux 2.6.25+.
