Yes, because the patch never made it into the kernel. The changelog says:
| [ Ben Hutchings ]
| * New upstream release candidate.
| - signal: Fix alternate signal stack check (Closes: #544905)
and this is not the case. I wrote earler  that the patch is in the
TIP tree and _will_ be merged into Linus' tree. I should probably not
have mention this part in order not cause any confusion what I obviously
However, the patch is now merged into Linus' tree  and it will show up
in v2.6.33-rc1. Due to its stable tag, the patch should pop up v2.6.32.X
In the meantime libsigsegfault upstream maintainer applied a duck tape
patch  to pass the test which just lame IMHO.
