// Some (old) Linux kernels on ARM have a bug where a signal handler
// can be called without clearing the IT bits in CPSR first. The result
// is that the first few instructions of the handler could be skipped,
// ultimately resulting in crashes. To workaround this bug, the handler
// on ARM is a trampoline that starts with enough NOP instructions, so
// that even if the IT bits are not cleared, only the NOP instructions
// will be skipped over.
