        Description

        os::signal(), on Solaris, does not specify SA_SIGINFO. This leads to signal handlers installed with this function - among others, the secondary signal handler installed during error reporting - to be called without siginfo_t pointer.

        All other platforms specify SA_SIGINFO in os::signal(), and so does the Solaris-specific code which installs the "big" primary signal handler.

        At SAP we run with this fix (specifying SA_SIGINFO on Solaris too) since years without problems.
