OK, but that doesn't necessitate the above monstrosity?  How about

static int __copy_siginfo_to_user32(struct compat_siginfo __user *to,
			     const struct kernel_siginfo *from, bool x32_ABI)
{
	struct compat_siginfo new;
	copy_siginfo_to_external32(&new, from);
	...
}

int copy_siginfo_to_user32(struct compat_siginfo __user *to,
			   const struct kernel_siginfo *from)
{
#if defined(CONFIG_X86_X32_ABI) || defined(CONFIG_IA32_EMULATION)
	return __copy_siginfo_to_user32(to, from, in_x32_syscall());
#else
	return __copy_siginfo_to_user32(to, from, 0);
#endif
}

Or something like that - I didn't try very hard.  We know how to do
this stuff, and surely this thing isn't how!
