posix_spawn() (see issue20104) needs the converter to sigset_t defined in signalmodule.c. Since the code is not trivial, it is better to share it instead of duplicate. The proposed PR:

* Exposes the sigset_t converter via private API _Py_Sigset_Converter(). The implementation is moved to posixmodule.c.

* Uses Argument Clinic for parsing sigset_t in signalmodule.c. In particularly it causes that the first argument of signal.sigtimedwait() will be parsed before the second one.

* Make the converter always raising ValueError for signal numbers out of range 1..NSIG. OverflowError was raised before for integers out of the platform depending C long range.

Since posix_spawn() has been removed in 3.7, there is no need to backport this feature.
