Note this bug should be corrected by recent changes by Christos Zoulas
to the kernel & libc.
The problem was in that passing of union (in semctl()) in a system
call is not really portable, it broke at least on Sparc.
Be sure get up-to-date kernel (one with syscalls.master rev. 1.99)
and libc (note you have to upgrade BOTH). Let us know if it helped.
