use struct pt_regs * rather than void * for powerpc[64] sigcontext regs
this is to match the kernel and glibc interfaces. here, struct pt_regs is an incomplete type, but that's harmless, and if it's completed by inclusion of another header then members of the struct pointed to by the regs member can be accessed directly without going through a cast or intermediate pointer object.
