Miguel -

Thanks for tracking this down.

I won't quite use your patch, since things changed around there
in 6.5.  But I did add code to save and restore errno in

Do you have reason to believe that this is needed in restart_handler?
I believe it shouldn't, since that should only be delivered to a thread
currently executing in the suspend_handler, and thus suspend_handler
already restore the correct errno.
