[PATCH] BZ #18696: x86 bits/siginfo.h is out of date

X86 struct siginfo in kernel 3.19 has been changed by

commit ee1b58d36aa1b5a79eaba11f5c3633c88231da83

    mpx: Extend siginfo structure to include bound violation information

    This patch adds new fields about bound violation into siginfo
    structure. si_lower and si_upper are respectively lower bound
    and upper bound when bound violation is caused.

This patch updates x86 struct siginfo to enable GDB with MPX support.

Fred and Dave, can you test the enclosed patch for 
/usr/include/bits/siginfo.h on GDB with MPX support?

	* sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/x86/bits/siginfo.h (_sigfault): Add
	(si_lower): New.
	(si_upper): Likewise.
