  Fix 32 bit signals on amd64.  It turns out that I was sign extending
  the register values coming back from sigreturn(2).  Normally this wouldn't
  matter because the 32 bit environment would truncate the upper 32 bits
  and re-save the truncated values at the next trap.  However, if we got
  a fast second signal and it was pending while we were returning from
  sigreturn(2) in the signal trampoline, we'd never have had a chance to
  truncate the bogus values in 32 bit mode, and the new sendsig would get
  an EFAULT when trying to write to the bogus user stack address.
