  gccgo compiled binaries are killed by SEGV on 64k ppc64el kernels

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  On kernels 3.13-18 and 3.13-23 (there may be others) the kernel is
  killing gccgo compiled binaries

  [18519.444748] jujud[19277]: bad frame in setup_rt_frame:
  0000000000000000 nip 0000000000000000 lr 0000000000000000
  [18519.673632] init: juju-agent-ubuntu-local main process (19220)
  killed by SEGV signal
  [18519.673651] init: juju-agent-ubuntu-local main process ended, respawning

  In powerpc/kernel/signal_64.c:

  sys_rt_sigreturn is jumping to the badframe: label and executing an
  unconditional force_sigsegv which is delivered to the userland
  process. Like C++, gccgo tries to decode SIGSEGV as a nil pointer
  access and blame some random function that happened to be the top
  stack frame.

  Reverting to the 3.13-08 kernel appears to resolve the issue which
  (weakly) points the finger at the recent switch to 64k pages.
