Subject[PATCH 4.1 37/78] Revert x86 sigcontext cleanups
Date
4.1-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>

commit ed596cde9425509ec6ce88e19f03e9b13b6f518b upstream.

This reverts commits 9a036b93a344 ("x86/signal/64: Remove 'fs' and 'gs'
from sigcontext") and c6f2062935c8 ("x86/signal/64: Fix SS handling for
signals delivered to 64-bit programs").

They were cleanups, but they break dosemu by changing the signal return
behavior (and removing 'fs' and 'gs' from the sigcontext struct - while
not actually changing any behavior - causes build problems).
