signals/sigaltstack: Implement SS_AUTODISARM flag
This patch implements the SS_AUTODISARM flag that can be OR-ed with SS_ONSTACK when forming ss_flags. When this flag is set, sigaltstack will be disabled when entering the signal handler; more precisely, after saving sas to uc_stack. When leaving the signal handler, the sigaltstack is restored by uc_stack. When this flag is used, it is safe to switch from sighandler with swapcontext(). Without this flag, the subsequent signal will corrupt the state of the switched-away sighandler. To detect the support of this functionality, one can do: err = sigaltstack(SS_DISABLE | SS_AUTODISARM); if (err && errno == EINVAL) unsupported(); Signed-off-by: Stas Sergeev <stsp@list.ru> Cc: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk> Cc: Aleksa Sarai <cyphar@cyphar.com> Cc: Amanieu d'Antras <amanieu@gmail.com> Cc: Andrea Arcangeli <aarcange@redhat.com> Cc: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Cc: Andy Lutomirski <luto@amacapital.net> Cc: Borislav Petkov <bp@alien8.de> Cc: Brian Gerst <brgerst@gmail.com> Cc: Denys Vlasenko <dvlasenk@redhat.com> Cc: Eric W.
