SubjectRe: [PATCH] Always send siginfo for synchronous signals
Erm, this updated patch.

J
If we're sending a signal relating to a faulting instruction, then
always generate siginfo for that signal.

If the user has some unrelated process which has managed to consume
the user's entire allocation of siginfo, then signals will start being
delivered without siginfo. Some programs absolutely depend on getting
siginfo for signals like SIGSEGV, and get very confused if they see a
SEGV without siginfo.

Such signals cannot be blocked (they're immediately fatal if they
are), and therefore cannot be queued. There's therefore no risk of
resource starvation.
