Fix authentication timeout that can occur right after client connecttions

This is possible when connection_life_time is enabled.

SIGALRM signal is used for both connection_life_time and
authentication_timeout. Usually, SIGALRM is for connection_life_time,
but when the new connection is arrive, read_startup_packet() is called,
and the handler for authentication_timeout is set by pool_signal() and
alarm(authentication_timeout) is called in enable_authentication_timeout().

However, if connection_life_time is expired **between pool_signal() and
alarm()**, authenticate_timeout() will be called when connection_life_time
is expired instead of pool_backend_timer_handler().

To fix this, call alarm() before pool_signal() to prevent the signal
handler from being with wrong timing.
