I was considering something like this as well, but I was able to come up
with a simple, two line change to the pm3 bootstrap assembly code to get
it to use the "undocumented 4th arg", sf_addr that is a member of the
struct sigframe* in sys/i386/include/sigframe.h. This appears to be
portable all the way back to RELENG_4, and probably earlier, and also
looks like it should work in i386 mode on amd64.
With this change to the bootstrap code, the pm3 build gets a lot
farther. It blows up pretty badly when it tries to build the compiler
with GCC 4.2, but I worked around that by hacking the build to use GCC
3.4 from ports.
The next problem is that it rebuilds the runtime code from Module-3
source and blows up when it tries to use the signal handler compiled
from the unmodified Modula-3 source. I started working on a patch for
that, which turns out to be a bit more tedious than I thought, because
the code uses a mixture of sigvec() and sigaction() and assumes that the
handlers are compatible.
Your patch might be worthwhile from the POLA standpoint. Would similar
changes need to be made to freebsd4_sendsig() and sendsig()?
