Subject[PATCH 10/20] signal/vm86_32: Properly send SIGSEGV when the vm86 state cannot be saved.
Instead of pretending to send SIGSEGV by calling do_exit(SIGSEGV)
call force_sigsegv(SIGSEGV) to force the process to take a SIGSEGV
and terminate.

Update handle_signal to return immediately when save_v86_state fails
and kills the process. Returning immediately without doing anything
except killing the process with SIGSEGV is also what signal_setup_done
does when setup_rt_frame fails. Plus it is always ok to return
immediately without delivering a signal to a userspace handler when a
fatal signal has killed the current process.
