It turned out to be in eglibc: #595403, fixed in 2.11.2-7 

I think this bug can be closed once somebody has confirmed that the
libsys-sigaction-perl test suite indeed succeeds with libc6 (>= 2.11.2-7).
(It's a bit early for that as the new libc is not installed on armel yet.)

Informing the upstream author too would be good of course.
