[Gc] [PATCH] GNU/Hurd lacks SA_SIGINFO

Can you try the attached version instead?  (Superficially tested only on

This leaves the type if GC_suspend_handler_inner alone.  It turns out it
has already getting pased a zero context on some platforms, so this
doesn't add new complications.  And GC_with_callee_saves_pushed passes
the extra argument.  Thus I'm not sure that the original patch is
completely correct.

The context argument gets passed only in case some future version of the
collector might want to parse the stack precisely.  If that ever
happens, it will happen only on platforms on which the context is
actually available.
