Subject[PATCH] x86: vm86() defaults to returning VM86_SIGNAL -- make this explicit
Date
This code has apparently used "0" and not VM86_SIGNAL since Linux
1.1.9, when Linus added VM86_SIGNAL to vm86.h. This patch changes the
code to use the symbolic name.

The magic 0 tripped me up in trying to extend the vm86(2) manpage to
actually explain vm86()'s interface -- my greps for VM86_SIGNAL came up
fruitless.
