Subject[PATCH] ppc32: Fixes to the signal context code
From
Date
Hi Andrew !

This patch (which has been in my tree for some time now) does 2
things to the ppc32 signal code:

- The new sys_swapcontext() syscall that we added recently (and which
is _not_ yet used by glibc, so it's ok to change it slightly at this
point, glibc kernel version check will limit us to 2.6.2 or 2.6.3)
gets a new context size argument, so we can deal with future context
size changes.

- When ucontext is get/set/swapped using the above syscall, the TLS
(r2) is preserved (it's still saved/restored on signal entry & return
though).

The equivalent of this patch is already in the ppc64 signal32.c emulation,
and it has no effect until glibc is updated to use the new syscall, which
should happen soon now, so please apply.

Regards,
Ben.
