I'm trying to find the faulted-on address in a SIGBUS handler.
StunOS passes the address as another parameter to the signal handler,
but I'm afraid I'm a bit confused as to how to get this from NetBSD.

I'm looking over the machine/signal.h, but it appears to my untrained eye
that I'd have to do some decoding of machine instructions (blech) and

Mainly I'm mprotecting some heap pages and I want to find out which ones
are being accessed, munprotect them, allow the access, and then later
mprotect them.

(Please help!)
