file kernel/signal.c, 2 * array subscript out of range

Hello there,

I just tried to compile Redhat Fedora package
kernel-2.6.12-1.1435_FC5 with the Intel C compiler version 8.1

The compiler said

kernel/signal.c(196): warning #175: subscript out of range

The source code is

case 4: ready = signal->sig[3] &~ blocked->sig[3];

Clearly broken code. Array sig has only _NSIG_WORDS elements,
which is set to two on this architecture.

Suggest rework code to use _NSIG_WORDS as the upper limit, not
a fixed constant.

The compiler also said

kernel/signal.c(197): warning #175: subscript out of range

on the next line of source code.
