Right now, xnanosleep is GPL.  But I don't see it calling exit() (which
is normally the reason why most x*() interfaces are GPL), and it would
be useful to use in libvirt.  Any objections to relaxing the license to
LGPLv2+, including a technical reason I might be overlooking?  nanosleep
and sigaction would also need relaxing from LGPLv3+ to LGPLv2+, but
those are easier to justify.
