+ * To avoid this, when taking a signal in an active transaction, we
+ * need to use the stack pointer from the checkpointed state, rather
+ * than the speculated state. This ensures that the signal context
+ * (written tm suspended) will be written below the stack required for
+ * the rollback. The transaction is aborted becuase of the treclaim,
+ * so any memory written between the tbegin and the signal will be
