[PATCH] sh: Fix clearing of thread info fault code

From: Michael BÃsch

The expression (~0 >> x) will always yield all-ones, because the right
shift is an arithmetic right shift that will always shift ones in.
Hence the old fault code bits will not be cleared before being ORed
with the new fault code.

Fix this by forcing a logical right shift instead of an arithmetic
right shift by using an unsigned long constant.

The code also assumes sizeof(ti->flags) == 4. But that probably is ok for this arch.

This patch is untested, because I do not have the hardware.
