I may be wrong here, but I suspect that you're repeating something
that I consider to be a mistake that's all over the x86 code.
Specifically, you're distinguishing "native" from "compat" instead of
"32-bit" from "64-bit". If you did the latter, then you wouldn't need
the "native" case to work differently on 32-bit kernels vs 64-bit
kernels, I think. Would making this change make your code simpler?

The x86 signal code is the worst offender IMO.
