Because I've just realised it's causing a segv on ARM Linux:

$ ./perl ext/POSIX/sigaction.t 
Segmentation fault

SEGV cured by backing out 11191 and its two PTH_ co-patches only.
Not a solution, as QNX needs them.

[quite a messy SEGV, as gdb says:
Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0xc94d98 in ?? ()

and refuses to play ball at all in giving anything away about where this
is. Even attempting to force an early return from the function isn't working]

I've no idea where, and I'm feeling somewhat shattered, so I'm not about
to commence tracing at assembly language level to find this one.
However, unless Jarkko's IPAQ is up to building perl, I guess I'm alone on
this one. (and Jarkko's probably busier than I am) :-(
