launcher: use SIGRTMIN to not conflict with xwayland

xwayland uses SIGUSR1 as startup notification. Make sure to use SIGRTMIN
for VT handling to avoid conflicts.

A bonus is SIGRT* signals can be queued multiple times, so we will be able
to correctly track them and will no longer lose signals (which wouldn't
really matter, but is confusing in logs).
