Sorry, I should have given more information.  I'm using 2.5.59-ia64-030124.

Yes, it does.  Hmm, the faults I'm getting are at ia64_sigtramp (exactly).
The first instruction (add r2=40,r12) doesn't look like it could possibly
be the cause, so I presume it is the RFI that is forcing a frame to be
loaded (?).
