How to find the sequence for signal handling mechanism in linux kernel ?


Hi mates,
I am working on tracing the signal handling mechanism in linux kernel internallly. For that, i build the kernel. Now, i want to trace the signal handling mechanism in the old kernel. I got to about SYSLOG and PRINTK for this. But,
how to use these tools exactly in tracing the handling of signals internally ?.
Is, there any tool similar to backtrace to do that?.
How the call flow is done internally ?

If anybody know the details, kindly share with me
Thanks in advance to all repliers

Thanks
vlc
