To people running the development kernel, please note that commit
e6e019a801e99ba7888ed009c5c3b3c7b047af1e requires a full world and kernel
Most/all programs should still run. Most pkgsrc programs should also
still run without needing to be rebuilt. However, several user-visible
structures have changed size and any programs doing really fancy stuff
with the signal stack state or with ucontext_t may break.
This commit fixes floating point state corruption when any signal is taken.
The bug was introduced on Jan 1 in master with the AVX work.
RELEASE kernels are NOT affected.
