Call for testing: patch that helps Wine on 6.x

This patch attempts to remove a gross hack with a slightly less gross hack in 
order to avoid clobbering data in signal info that Wine needs.  In 7 this was 
fixed by a major change to how the kernel manages signals internally, and 
that change is too large to be MFC'd, hence this lighter weight patch.  It 
has already been tested by the folks working on Wine, but I would like a bit 
more widespread testing before I commit it.  Please test this patch and let 
me know if anything breaks.  Note that this patch is only for i386.
