Looks good, except...

         ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

This call to set_process_mask_delta() should occur before constructing
the context, so that filling in uc_sigmask can be moved into the above
`'if' branch.

On second thought, isn't this slightly wrong anyway?  Shouldn't that be

         context.uc_sigmask = _my_tls.sigmask;
	 context.uc_mcontext.oldmask = this_oldmask;

?
