I have just finished running jdk 1.3 successfully using Paul's stable
2.2.15pre19 kernel (rsynced yesterday) and your posix signal patch backported
to the stable tree.

So far it seems to be working well with no real difficulties.

I will try to exercise the SA_SIGINFO info in some signal handlers to make sure
things are working okay.

I sure hope Paul and Cort add your patch in.
