a) signalfd is Linux specific

b) In same way you can use sigwaitinfo for SIGCHLD
   but it still does not solve the problem.

c) You need to provide a signal handler that would notify
   all active io_services and once they notified they should
   poll for current processes that it waits for them
   to check if they are terminated.

   Or some signal chaining may be used...
   It is not simple, but nobody says that is should be
