If a parser process is terminated while holding a write lock, then it
will lead to a deadlock (see

With SIGTERM, we don't want to terminate holding the lock. We also don't
want a SIGINT to cause a partial write to the event stream.

Use signal masks to avoid this.

Some ideas from Peter Kjellerstedt <peter.kjellerstedt@axis.com>
