Subject: [PATCH] linux-user: fix segfault deadlock
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit

When entering the guest we take a lock to ensure that nobody else messes
with our TB chaining while we're doing it. If we get a segfault inside that
code, we manage to work on, but will not unlock the lock.

This patch forces unlocking of that lock in the segv handler. I'm not sure
this is the right approach though. Maybe we should rather make sure we don't
segfault in the code? I would greatly appreciate someone more intelligible
than me to look at this :).

Example code to trigger this is at: http://csgraf.de/tmp/conftest.c
