    Subjectsigaction SA_SIGINFO functionality

    I can't get sigaction to work with SA_SIGINFO type of handler. I can see
    that this is already in the kernel but does it work?

    This is the program that doesn't work:

    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <asm/signal.h> /* ???! */
    #include <setjmp.h>

    jmp_buf main_loop;

    void sigsegv_handler (int arg, struct siginfo *si, void *parg)
    printf ("Signal SEGV! si = 0x%p\n", si);
    longjmp (main_loop, 1);

    main ()
    char *f = NULL;
    int retval;
    struct sigaction sa;

    sigaction (SIGSEGV, NULL, &sa);
    sa.sa_sigaction = sigsegv_handler;
    sa.sa_flags = SA_SIGINFO;
    sigemptyset (&sa.sa_mask);
    retval = sigaction (SIGSEGV, &sa, NULL);
    if (retval < 0)
    exit (10);

    printf ("Entering the loop\n");

    if (setjmp (main_loop))
    printf ("Back at main_loop\n");
    *f = 0;

    return 0;

    This results in the following output:
    Signal SEGV! si = 0x(nil)
    Back at main_loop
    Signal SEGV! si = 0x(nil)
    Back at main_loop

    So, the si parameter (as well as parg) is NULL. The kernel didn't realize
    that I have a siginfo type of handler, did it?

    Is it something with the program or the kernel?

    Thanks in advance,
