This is subjective, but I am not sure about "less" ;) Yes, we avoid the
magic offsets, but we add SFD_SHARED/PER_THREAD which need to change
dequeue_signal plus other complications. And for what?

(Can't resist sorry... yes we need /proc/pid/cr or /dev/cr or whatever
 which dumps almost everything c/r needs without need to add a lot of
 cr code everywhere).

Perhaps, but I am not sure about the textual representation.

And to me, the best solution is the simplest solution. Please look
at the patch below. It is trivial. And we can also drop the SFD_RAW
patch in -mm.

Oleg.
