If we can do it correctly elsewhere, I'm fine with that too :-)

You know the signal code much better than I do. If that works, I'm all
for that too. I really don't like the entry_64 solution, but it was what
I knew would work.

My strengths are in the entry_64.S code, not the signal code, so I fixed
it the best way that I felt. This does not imply my fix is the best. If
we can solve this in a clean way using the existing signal
infrastructure, I'm all for that.
