I think this code should really be part of the logging.c file. eg create
an API like:

   void virLogEmergencyDumpAll(int signum)


And have that dump the cached log buffer to all registered log outputs.
We'd have to excluding any syslog one which isn't async signal safe, but
the 'stderr' or 'file' log outputs can be made async signal safe.

Then, the libvirtd signal handler would just be

    static void sig_fatal(int sig, siginfo_t * siginfo ATTRIBUTE_UNUSED,
                      void* context ATTRIBUTE_UNUSED) {
         virLogEmergencyDumpAll(sig);
    }
