Martin, is kern.module.autoload enabled on your machine?  (Sorry, my Mac mini is in a state of “has been turned off for a while”, so I need to resurrect it today, so asking for info here to get the investigation going…)

The PowerPC signal trampoline also has a case where it can return EINVAL because it thinks the saved SRR1 has been tampered with.  I’m wondering if somehow the old sigcontext trampoline is getting invoked for a siginfo-style handler.
