See the comments in the bug report: basically we don't know if you have
a system that is broken only on the userspace side or also in the
kernel-use ABI. Moreover we don't have access to such broken systems for
testing, so you'll have to make the actual changes yourself, they are
mostly trivial as written in the bug.

No, it is a problem only on your system, so you likely have something
else broken apart from the signal ABI.
