It's a) GDB's fault, which I believe too *and* b) Linux's fault
not to have SIGEMT and to reverse the locations of SIGBUS and SIGUSR1
(which should be SIGEMT). I don't mind to hack a workaround, but
shouldn't we contact Linus regarding that? I'm interested to hear
why Linux has mapped the signals exactly this way! Or do you know
any possible reason ?
