A similar patch for EXCP_AdEL seems to fix the problems
with Linux floating point emulation.
Linux uses self modifying code on the stack in the FPU emulation
and terminates this code using "lw zero,1(zero)"
(which raises EXCP_AdEL).
Sometimes, a system call which follows and is also on the stack
does not raise EXCP_SYSCALL but raises EXCP_AdEL, so the calling
process gets a signal SIGILL.
I tested this by running aptitude on Debian 4.0.
It crashs with 4KEc (no FPU, CVS HEAD).
It works with default CPU (FPU, CVS HEAD).
It works with 4KEc (no FPU, patched CVS HEAD).
