uml: fix irqstack crash
This patch fixes a crash caused by an interrupt coming in when an IRQ stack is being torn down. When this happens, handle_signal will loop, setting up the IRQ stack again because the tearing down had finished, and handling whatever signals had come in. However, to_irq_stack returns a mask of pending signals to be handled, plus bit zero is set if the IRQ stack was already active, and thus shouldn't be torn down. This causes a problem because when handle_signal goes around the loop, sig will be zero, and to_irq_stack will duly set bit zero in the returned mask, faking handle_signal into believing that it shouldn't tear down the IRQ stack and return thread_info pointers back to their original values. This will eventually cause a crash, as the IRQ stack thread_info will continue pointing to the original task_struct and an interrupt will look into it after it has been freed. The fix is to stop passing a signal number into to_irq_stack. Rather, the pending signals mask is initialized beforehand with the bit for sig already set. References to sig in to_irq_stack can be replaced with references to the mask.
