Here's a snippet from emulate_load_store_insn.  See the way the sdl and sdr
are wrapped in fixups?  Well, the fixups can't trigger: we get to
emulate_load_store_insn a second time, and we hit the fact that sdl_op has a
"goto sigbus" before we hit the fixup_exception call.

It doesn't much matter, the bug I'm working on is whatever caused the first
call.  But we get a SIGBUS when arguably we ought to get a SIGSEGV.

        case sd_op:
#ifdef CONFIG_MIPS64
                 * A 32-bit kernel might be running on a 64-bit processor.  But
                 * if we're on a 32-bit processor and an i-cache incoherency
                 * or race makes us see a 64-bit instruction here the sdl/sdr
                 * would blow up, so for now we don't handle unaligned 64-bit
                 * instructions on 32-bit kernels.
                if (verify_area(VERIFY_WRITE, addr, 8))
                        goto sigbus;

                value = regs->regs[insn.i_format.rt];
                __asm__ __volatile__ (
#ifdef __BIG_ENDIAN
                        "2:\tsdr\t%1, 7(%2)\n\t"
                        "1:\tsdl\t%1, 7(%2)\n"
                        "2:\tsdr\t%1, (%2)\n\t"
                        "li\t%0, 0\n"
                        "4:\tli\t%0, %3\n\t"
                        STR(PTR)"\t1b, 4b\n\t"
                        STR(PTR)"\t2b, 4b\n\t"
                : "=r" (res)
                : "r" (value), "r" (addr), "i" (-EFAULT));
                if (res)
                        goto fault;
