Subject[PATCH 05/20] signal/mips: Update (_save|_restore)_fp_context to fail with -EFAULT
When an instruction to save or restore a register from the stack fails
in _save_fp_context or _restore_fp_context return with -EFAULT. This
change was made to r2300_fpu.S[1] but it looks like it got lost with
the introduction of EX2[2]. This is also what the other implementation
of _save_fp_context and _restore_fp_context in r4k_fpu.S does, and
what is needed for the callers to be able to handle the error.

Furthermore calling do_exit(SIGSEGV) from bad_stack is wrong because
it does not terminate the entire process it just terminates a single
thread.

As the changed code was the only caller of arch/mips/kernel/syscall.c:bad_stack
remove the problematic and now unused helper function.
