-m68knommu: fix user a5 register being overwritten
-
-On no-MMU systems the application a5 register can be overwitten with the
-address of the process data segment when processing application signals.
-For flat format applications compiled with full absolute relocation this
-effectively corrupts the a5 register on signal processing - and this very
-quickly leads to process crash and often takes out the whole system with
-a panic as well.
-
-This has no effect on flat format applications compiled with the more
-common PIC methods (such as -msep-data). These format applications reserve
-a5 for the pointer to the data segment anyway - so it doesn't change it.
-
-A long time ago the a5 register was used in the code packed into the user
-stack to enable signal return processing. And so it had to be restored on
-end of signal cleanup processing back to the original a5 user value. This
-was historically done by saving away a5 in the sigcontext structure. At
-some point (a long time back it seems) the a5 restore process was changed
-and it was hard coded to put the user data segment address directly into a5.
-Which is ok for the common PIC compiled application case, but breaks the
-full relocation application code.
-
-We no longer use this type of signal handling mechanism and so we don't
-need to do anything special to save and restore a5 at all now. So remove the
-code that hard codes a5 to the address of the user data segment.
