Subject[REVIEW][PATCH 14/17] signal/unicore32: Use FPE_FLTUNK instead of 0 in ucf64_raise_sigfpe
The si_code of 0 (aka SI_USER) has fields si_pid and si_uid not
si_addr so it so only by luck would the appropriate fields by copied
to userspace by copy_siginfo_to_user.

This is just broken and wrong.

Make it obvious what is happening by moving the si_code from a
parameter of the one call to ucf64_raise_sigfpe to a constant value
that info.si_code gets set to.

Explicitly set the si_code to FPE_FLTUNK the newly reserved floating
point si_code for an unknown floating point exception.

It looks like there is a fair chance that this is a code path that has
never been used in real life on unicore32. The bad si_code and the
print statement that calls it an unhandled exception. So I really
don't expect anyone will mind if this just gets fixed.

In similar situations on more popular architectures the conclusion was
just fix it.
