Previously, the signal handler would be byte swapped if the target and
host CPU used different endianness. This would cause a SIGSEGV when
attempting to translate the opcode pointed to by the swapped address.

 Thread 1 "qemu-ppc64" received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

The signal handler will be byte swapped as a result of the __get_user()
call in sigaction() if it is necessary, no additional swap is required.
