Thought about it a little more.

To make this really work, we’d definitely have to version sigaction() so that it fully de-supported sigcontext handlers.  Otherwise, it’s a toss-up whether you have a sigcontext or a ucontext on the stack.  I do think a __sigtramp_unwind() would also be a good addition.  But I also see some value in the basic check (which you need to have to __sigtramp_unwind() anyway…).
