Subject[PATCH 01/24] arm64: signal: Make parse_user_sigframe() independent of rt_sigframe layout
From: Dave Martin <>

ILP32 uses the same struct sigcontext as the native ABI (i.e.,
LP64), but a different layout for the rest of the signal frame (since
siginfo_t and ucontext_t are both ABI-dependent).

Since the purpose of parse_user_sigframe() is really to parse sigcontext
and not the whole signal frame, the function does not need to depend
on the layout of rt_sigframe -- the only purpose of the rt_sigframe
pointer is for use as a base to measure the signal frame size.

So, this patch renames the function to make it clear that only the
sigcontext is really being parsed, and makes the sigframe base pointer
generic. A macro is defined to provide a suitable duck-typed interface
that can be used with both sigframe definitions.
