NAME

rt_sigreturn - Return from a signal handler and clean up the stack frame  

SYNOPSIS

int sys_rt_sigreturn (unsigned long __unused); xSeries
int sys_rt_sigreturn (int r3, int r4, int r5, int r6, int r7, int r8, struct pt_regs *regs); pSeries
long sys_rt_sigreturn (struct pt_regs regs); Opteron, zSeries
 

DESCRIPTION

rt_sigreturn returns from a signal handler and cleans up the stack frame. The int r# values for pSeries are place holders and do not carry any value in the code itself. In some architectures, the struct pt_regs regs is used to indicate interrupts.  

RETURN VALUE

rt_sigreturn returns old context.  

ERRORS

None.
