    signal/arm64: Push siginfo generation into arm64_notify_die · 6fa998e8
    Eric W. Biederman authored
    Instead of generating a struct siginfo before calling arm64_notify_die
    pass the signal number, tne sicode and the fault address into
    arm64_notify_die and have it call force_sig_fault instead of
    force_sig_info to let the generic code generate the struct siginfo.
    
    This keeps code passing just the needed information into
    siginfo generating code, making it easier to see what
    is happening and harder to get wrong.  Further by letting
    the generic code handle the generation of struct siginfo
    it reduces the number of sites generating struct siginfo
    making it possible to review them and verify that all
    of the fiddly details for a structure passed to userspace
    are handled properly.
