Subject[PATCH 07/20] signal/powerpc: On swapcontext failure force SIGSEGV
If the register state may be partial and corrupted instead of calling
do_exit, call force_sigsegv(SIGSEGV). Which properly kills the
process with SIGSEGV and does not let any more userspace code execute,
instead of just killing one thread of the process and potentially
confusing everything.
