Don't know of any.  But I haven't implemented it yet.

If it's the only problem, perhaps the Emacs code should be written
to run on older glibs, where it'll ignore child-process stops and continues.
If this turns out to be a real problem we can disable it (i.e., use the
current godawful workaround) on older glibs.  But anyway, the idea is
to prevent this from being a blocking issue for Emacs.
