Upstream patch level bump.


Bash-4.2 does not attempt to save the shell history on receipt of a
terminating signal that is handled synchronously.  Unfortunately, the
`close' button on most X11 terminal emulators sends SIGHUP, which
kills the shell.

This is a very small patch to save the history in the case that an
interactive shell receives a SIGHUP or SIGTERM while in readline and
reading a command.

The next version of bash will do this differently.

Signoff both,
