SubjectRe: Bug (since v4.20): integer underflow in known_siginfo_layout() when sig=0

Ouch. Good catch.

It looks like the fix is just to do:

diff --git a/include/linux/signal.h b/include/linux/signal.h
index f428e86f4800..b5d99482d3fe 100644
--- a/include/linux/signal.h
+++ b/include/linux/signal.h
@@ -388,7 +388,7 @@ extern bool unhandled_signal(struct task_struct *tsk, int sig);

#define siginmask(sig, mask) \
- ((sig) < SIGRTMIN && (rt_sigmask(sig) & (mask)))
+ ((sig) > 0 && (sig) < SIGRTMIN && (rt_sigmask(sig) & (mask)))

rt_sigmask(SIGKILL) | rt_sigmask(SIGSTOP))

As gcc is smart enough to combine those two range tests into a single
comparison. That will ensure the undefined behavior does not byte
anyone else.

I will see about whipping up a proper patch.
