But sig is bounds checked. Even better sig is checked to see if it
is one of the values in the array.

Hmm. I wonder if something is passing in a negative signal number.
There is not a bounds check for that. A sufficiently large signal
number might be the problem here. Yes. I can get an oops with
a sufficiently large negative signal number.
The code will later call valid_signal in check_permissions and
that will cause the system call to fail, so the issue is just that
the signal number is not being validated early enough.
On the output path (copy_siginfo_to_user and copy_siginfo_to_user32) the
signal number should be validated before it ever reaches userspace
which is why I expect trinity never triggered anything.
There is copy_siginfo_from_user32 and that does call siginfo_layout with
a possibly negative signal number. Which has the same potential issues.
So I am going to go with the fix below. That fixes things in my testing
and by being unsigned should fix keep negative numbers from being a
Sean thank you very much for putting me on the right path to track this
failing test down.
