Re: [PATCH 5/5] signal(ia64_ia32): add a signal stack overflow check

From: Shi Weihua <shiwh_at_cn.fujitsu.com>
Date: 2008-02-19 13:26:19
The similar check has been added to x86_32(i386) in commit
id 83bd01024b1fdfc41d9b758e5669e80fca72df66.
So we add this check to ia64_ia32 and improve it a liitle bit in that
we need to check for stack overflow only when the signal is on stack.

The previous patch has a comment mistake. Now I correct it.
