Bug #7917: Can't write to a Logger in a signal handler

Looks like Ruby 2.0 does not allow Mutex#lock within a signal handler.  This prevents Logger from working since it uses an underlying mutex.

log writing failed. can't be called from trap context
log writing failed. can't be called from trap context
log writing failed. can't be called from trap context
log writing failed. can't be called from trap context

Here's Ruby code which reproduces the problem:

require 'logger'

LOG = Logger.new(STDOUT)
LOG.info "Now logging!"

trap 'INT' do
  LOG.info "Hello"
end

sleep
LOG.info "Done"

Run it and hit Ctrl-C.
