Thanks...

and sorry, I fail to understand the problem and what/how this patch tries to fix.

Hmm. After I read the next email from Dmitry it seems to me that the whole purpose
of this patch is to avoid print_fatal_signal()? If yes, the changelog should clearly
explain this.

I won't argue, but may be force_sigsegv() should check fatal_signal_pending()
itself. setup_rt_frame() can too fail if fatal_signal_pending() by the same
reason.

Oleg.
