That doesn't fly, see below.

include/asm-generic/siginfo.h defines BUS_MCEERR_AR unconditionally and is
getting include in all <asm/siginfo.h> so that #ifdef condition is always
true. struct siginfo.si_addr_lsb is defined only for the generic struct
siginfo. The architectures that define HAVE_ARCH_SIGINFO_T (MIPS and
IA-64) do not define this field so the build breaks.
