SubjectRe: PATCH: siginfo -> si_band is long

Hi Andrew, the patch looks good to me (I originally stumbled across this
when debugging an application trying to use SIGIO, which is currently
broken on ppc64).

Could you please pick it up?

s390x, sparc64 might also be affected, btw.

Why are all these archs not using the asm-generic/siginfo.h anyway?
*sigh*. Oh well.
