Subject[PATCH v2 0/4] x86: sigcontext fixes, again
This is take 2 at fixing x86 64-bit signals wrt SS.  After a lot of
thought, this is not controlled by any flags -- I would much prefer
to avoid opt-in behavior. Instead, it just tries hard to avoid
triggering the cases that break DOSEMU.

Stas, this now seems to pass the test you sent me. It works with
stock dosemu2 (I haven't tested classic dosemu because I can't get it
to work regardless). It also works with a patched dosemu2 that bypasses
the userspace trampoline:

With this applied, all of the x86 selftests pass on x86_64. That
wasn't the case before -- ldt_gdt_64 was broken.

This is a bit risky, and another option would be to do nothing at
all. Then we'd disable the problematic self-tests (sigh), and
DOSEMU and similar tools will be stuck using gross hacks even on new

Changes from v1:
- Comment fixes
- Fix screwed up uaccess that broke things

Andy Lutomirski (4):
x86/signal/64: Add a comment about sigcontext->fs and gs
x86/signal/64: Fix SS if needed when delivering a 64-bit signal
x86/signal/64: Re-add support for SS in the 64-bit signal context
selftests/x86: Add tests for UC_SIGCONTEXT_SS and UC_STRICT_RESTORE_SS
