I like the idea, though the patch isn't quite right:

- You need to move the definition of INT_SWINT_1_SIGRETURN from
<asm/sigframe.h> to <asm/syscall.h>. You then have to add #includes of
<asm/syscall.h> to signal.c and stack.c in arch/tile/kernel. (And probably
use syscall_clear() in signal.c.)

- In syscall_do_restartblock() you need to use regs->regs[], not regs->gprs[].
