vm: make stack guard page errors return VM_FAULT_SIGSEGV rather than SIGBUS
commit 9c145c56d0c8a0b62e48c8d71e055ad0fb2012ba upstream. The stack guard page error case has long incorrectly caused a SIGBUS rather than a SIGSEGV, but nobody actually noticed until commit fee7e49d4514 ("mm: propagate error from stack expansion even for guard page") because that error case was never actually triggered in any normal situations. Now that we actually report the error, people noticed the wrong signal that resulted. So far, only the test suite of libsigsegv seems to have actually cared, but there are real applications that use libsigsegv, so let's not wait for any of those to break.
