IIUC dmitry said he will cook a patch. I have not seen any patch yet.

AFAIKS, among the architectures having VDSO sigreturn trampolines, only SH, X86 and POWERPC provide
alternative trampoline on stack when VDSO is not there.

All other architectures just having a VDSO don't expect VDSO to not be mapped.

As far as nowadays stacks are mapped non-executable, getting a segfaut is expected behaviour.
However, I think we should really make it cleaner. Today it segfaults because it is still pointing
to the VDSO trampoline that has been unmapped. But should the user map some other code at the same
address, we'll run in the weed on signal return instead of segfaulting.

So VDSO unmapping should really be properly managed, the reference should be properly cleared in
order to segfault in a controllable manner.

Only powerpc has a hook to properly clear the VDSO pointer when VDSO is unmapped.
