[PATCH] signal/nds32: More information in do_revinsn

From: Eric W. Biederman

While reviewing f6ed1ecad56f ("signal/nds32: Use force_sig(SIGILL) in do_revisn")
Vincent Chen asked if it was possible to provide more information in do_revinsn
with force_sig_fault.

That seems reasonable and the appropirate si_code appears to be
ILL_ILLOPC (illegal opcode) as the printk indicates this code path
is triggered when a reserved instruction is exectured.

So update do_revinsn to use force_sig_fault(SIGILL, ILL_ILLOPC, ...).
Giving userspace a much better experience when soemone attempts
to execute a reserved instruction.

Vincent I have updated this from your suggestion to use
ILL_ILLOPC as that appears the more appropriate si_code.
Normally I expect you could just update your nds32 tree and
make this kind of change but since I am touching this code anyway I will
be happy to take this change along with the others.

Does this look good to you?
