this is necessary to meet the C++ ABI target. alternatives were
considered to avoid the size increase for non-sig jmp_buf objects, but
they seemed to have worse properties. moreover, the relative size
increase is only extreme on x86[_64]; one way of interpreting this is
that, if the size increase from this patch makes jmp_buf use too much
memory, then the program was already using too much memory when built
for non-x86 archs.
on arm, the location of the saved-signal-mask flag and mask were off
by one between sigsetjmp and siglongjmp, causing incorrect behavior
restoring the signal mask. this is because the siglongjmp code assumed
an extra slot was in the non-sig jmp_buf for the flag, but arm did not
have this. now, the extra slot is removed for all archs since it was
also, arm eabi requires jmp_buf to have 8-byte alignment. we achieve
that using long long as the type rather than with non-portable gcc
this port assumes eabi calling conventions, eabi linux syscall
convention, and presence of the kernel helpers at 0xffff0f?0 needed
for threads support. otherwise it makes very few assumptions, and the
code should work even on armv4 without thumb support, as well as on
systems with thumb interworking. the bits headers declare this a
little endian system, but as far as i can tell the code should work
equally well on big endian.
some small details are probably broken; so far, testing has been
limited to qemu/aboriginal linux.
