You mean because the patch uses pthread_sigmask / sigprocmask?
IMHO this is ok as:

1. Prefork is not OS generic.
2. APR currently does not offer what we need here. Getting an appropriate API in a stable
version of APR would require
   to release a new minor version of APR (1.8.x) first.
3. It would require raising the minimum version for APR in httpd to 1.8. This might be fine
for trunk, but should not be
   done for 2.4.x where we would like to backport this fix to.
