[PATCH 00/11] siginfo fixes/cleanups esp SI_USER

The following changes are available at:
    git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/ebiederm/user-namespace.git  siginfo-minor-fixesv2

While answering a question about my earlier introduction to
siginfo_layout I realized that the code introduces a small number
of cases where unitialized memory is copied to userspace as
a result of the fact that SI_USER is sometimes confused with
another si_code.

This modifies all of the places in the kernel that generate a signal
with si_code == SI_USER to fully initialize all of siginfo.  Further
this change updates architectures that are using si_code of 0 to
mean something other than SI_USER to use TRAP_FIXME, FPE_FIXME, or
BUS_FIXME to document the problem.

With all these changes take together there is no danger of copying
unitialized values to userspace when SI_USER is mistaken for TRAP_FIXME,

This series also contains a fix for sh and a fix for openrisc where
they are improperly generating a signal and the fix is obvious.

Eric W. Biederman (11):
      signal: Simplify and fix kdb_send_sig
      signal/sh: Ensure si_signo is initialized in do_divide_error
      signal/openrisc: Fix do_unaligned_access to send the proper signal
      signal/parisc: Document a conflict with SI_USER with SIGFPE
      signal/metag: Document a conflict with SI_USER with SIGFPE
      signal/powerpc: Document conflicts with SI_USER and SIGFPE and SIGTRAP
      signal/arm64: Document conflicts with SI_USER and SIGFPE,SIGTRAP,SIGBUS
      signal/arm: Document conflicts with SI_USER and SIGFPE
      signal: Reduce copy_siginfo to just a memcpy
      signal: Introduce clear_siginfo
      signal: Ensure generic siginfos the kernel sends have all bits initialized
