We dont even have bios_sigsearch() - all the consumers in the kernel 
were related to vm86()/bios16()/bios32() calls, which are impossible in 
our kernel.

What do you need it for?  It might be ok to revive a subset of it, but 
it would be useful to know what that file is being used for first, so 
we know which subsets are needed.
