Umm. I don't think that is possible.
You need architecture-specific code to even get access to all registers to
copy and get a signal-handler-compatible stack frame. See for example
arch/alpha/kernel/entry.S with the switch-stack thing etc. I don't think
there is any way to make that even remotely architecture-neutral.
