2.4.18-2.4.22 signal handling speed regression

We have an app that uses signals heavily (30K/sec at times). When moving it from 2.4.18 to 2.4.22, we noticed a significant speed decrease, to the point where it is about 2.5 times slower on 2.4.22.

We're trying to figure out what is causing the problem, but I thought I'd see if anyone has any ideas off the top of their heads.

PowerPC hardware, 1 cpu, single-threaded app.
