Mind you not in the signalhandler though - that will break major
havoc with the runtime. There is no good way as far as I know to
have a sighandler in Erlang.

Only possible solution I see is to

1. Have a socket setup from the driver to the beam (over loopback)
2. in the sighandler write some data on the socket.
