So you are regnerating siginfo to ensure you don't copy unintended
things such as the host pid and host uid.

Then my analysis is correct that you simply missed filtering out the
si codes that are not signal specific and do not use the fault layout
in struct siginfo.

Is si_addr safe to copy across?  I presume so since the kernel just
ptraces an ordinary process, but I figure I should ask and double
check.

I am going to respin my patch.  I would say that you really need a
white-list of si_codes that whose use of struct siginfo that you know.
Otherwise you could get into the same problem of under or over copying
data.
