MIPS: Send SIGILL for BPOSGE32 in `__compute_return_epc_for_insn'
commit 7b82c1058ac1f8f8b9f2b8786b1f710a57a870a8 upstream. Fix commit e50c0a8fa60d ("Support the MIPS32 / MIPS64 DSP ASE.") and send SIGILL rather than SIGBUS whenever an unimplemented BPOSGE32 DSP ASE instruction has been encountered in `__compute_return_epc_for_insn' as our Reserved Instruction exception handler would in response to an attempt to actually execute the instruction. Sending SIGBUS only makes sense for the unaligned PC case, since moved to `__compute_return_epc'. Adjust function documentation accordingly, correct formatting and use `pr_info' rather than `printk' as the other exit path already does. Fixes: e50c0a8fa60d ("Support the MIPS32 / MIPS64 DSP ASE.")
