Right, though that would require a cast afaict.

static int __copy_siginfo_from_user_generic(int signo, kernel_siginfo_t *kinfo,
siginfo_t *info)
if (in_compat_syscall())
return __copy_siginfo_from_user32(
signo, kinfo, (struct compat_siginfo __user *)info);
return __copy_siginfo_from_user(signo, kinfo, info);

It seems that a cast to (compat_siginfo __user *) should be safe in this
context? I've at least seen similar things done for __sys_sendmsg().

Not a fan of that name. I'm going to go with procfd_send_signal().
sigqueue gives non-native speakers a lot of room for spelling errors and
it always seemed opaque to me what this function is doing without
consulting the manpage. :)
