I brought this up with bde before.  My suggestion was to create
another sigreturn(), so we'd have osigreturn(), osigreturn2(),
and [new] sigreturn().  He didn't like this.  I think we'd need
another sendsig() too.

When mini adds setcontext() as a system call, this can make
sigreturn() obsolete.  The signal trampoline can call setcontext()
instead of sigreturn() and sigreturn() can handle the old
format...  We still need a different sendsig() though.
