Subject[PATCH v2 11/43] ia64: Use set_current_blocked() and block_sigmask()
From: Matt Fleming <>

As described in e6fa16ab ("signal: sigprocmask() should do
retarget_shared_pending()") the modification of current->blocked is
incorrect as we need to check whether the signal we're about to block
is pending in the shared queue.

Also, use the new helper function block_sigmask() which centralises
the code for updating current->blocked after successfully delivering a
signal and reduces the amount of duplicate code across
architectures. In the past some architectures got this code wrong, so
using this helper function should stop that from happening again.

v2 of this patch depends on "[PATCH 01/43] signal: Add block_sigmask()
for adding sigmask to current->blocked" so they need to go through the
same tree but this patch would benefit from some maintainer ACK's.

* Let tracing know that we've done the handler setup.
