GNU libsigsegv allows handling memory page faults in user mode.
This is useful for implementing pageable virtual memory, memory-mapped
access to persistent databases, generational garbage collectors,
stack overflow handlers, distributed shared memory, and so on.

New in 2.7:

* Support for platforms that follow POSIX:2008, not POSIX:2001.

* Support for MirBSD 10.

* Support for IRIX 5.3. Contributed by Eric Blake.

* On Linux platforms, libsigsegv now prefers the POSIX way of defining the
  signal handler over than the traditional one, when both are supported.
  As a consequence, on Linux/i386 and other Linux platforms, the type
  'stackoverflow_context_t' is now typedefed to 'ucontext_t *' rather than
  'struct sigcontext *'.
