[lldb-dev] Thread resumes with stale signal after executing InferiorCallMmap

Does it only happen for InferiorCallMmap, or does an expression evaluation that crashes in general set a bad signal on resume?  I don't see this behavior in either case on OS X, so it may be something in the Linux support.  Be interesting to figure out why it behaves this way on Linux, so whatever we do we're implementing it consistently.

I dug up into this, and there seems to be two independent problems there, this mail is about the second one.

This mmap gets SIG_ILL because execution starts at address which is 2 bytes before the very first mmap instruction. I am still looking why LLDB server decided to do that - I am pretty sure that the client asked to set the program counter to correct value.
