the fix looks good. Only the indentation looks odd, but I don't need to see a new webrev for that.

could I please get reviews for this tiny test fix?
Per default, ppc does not use polling pages. It uses the trap instruction
to do the polling, which is faster.
Setting -UseSIGTRAP makes ppc behave as other platforms.
