s/sigreturn/signal/ and there's more pending patches in that pile; I'd
estimate that as 30-40, unless new classes of bugs show up in that crap.
In that case all bets are off... And yes, I'm serious - it's that badly
bitrotten. I'm holding back the obvious cleanups (e.g. there's a bunch
of common helpers asking to be introduced); for now it's plain bugfixes
and the estimate above is just for those. Cleanups will have to wait for
the merge window...
