[zeromq-dev] czmq v3.0.0: zsys_handler_set - different semantics from v2 API

in czmq v2.x, if you did a zsys_handler_set(NULL) at the beginning of the program, czmq would refrain from _any_ signal handling which is what I need (I do that synchronously with signalfd for those signals which can be trapped by signalfd)

v3.0.0 outsmarts me by insisting on calling zsys_catch_interrupts() from zsys_init() if ZSYS_SIGHANDLER is not set, and that interferes with signalfd handling

I guess the proper way would be to call  zsys_catch_interrupts() ONLY if s_first_time is true

if agreed, I'll prepare a PR
