[New-bugs-announce] [issue24011] Add error checks to PyInit_signal()

New submission from Christian Heimes:

The init function of the signal module fails to check for errors in a couple of places. The patch replaces PyDict_SetItemString() calls with PyModule_AddIntMacro() and error checks. An exception is unlikely so I'm OK when the patch just lands in 3.4 and 3.5.

CID 1295026 (#41 of 41): Dereference null return value (NULL_RETURNS)
dereference: Dereferencing a pointer that might be null x when calling PyDict_SetItemString
