Setting si_code to __SI_FAULT results in a userspace seeing
an si_code of 0.  This is the same si_code as SI_USER.  Posix
and common sense requires that SI_USER not be a signal specific
si_code.  As such this use of 0 for the si_code is a pretty
horribly broken ABI.

This use of of __SI_FAULT is only a decade old.  Which compared
to the other pieces of kernel code that has made this mistake
is almost yesterday.

This is probably worth fixing but I don't know mips well enough
to know what si_code to would be the proper one to use.
