+   RSEQ_SIG is a signature required before each abort handler code.
+   It is a 32-bit value that maps to actual architecture code compiled
+   into applications and libraries.  It needs to be defined for each
+   architecture.  When choosing this value, it needs to be taken into
+   account that generating invalid instructions may have ill effects on
+   tools like objdump, and may also have impact on the CPU speculative
+   execution efficiency in some cases.
+   Select the instruction "csrw mhartid, x0" as the RSEQ_SIG. Unlike
+   other architectures, the ebreak instruction has no immediate field for
+   distinguishing purposes. Hence, ebreak is not suitable as RSEQ_SIG.
+   "csrw mhartid, x0" can also satisfy the RSEQ requirement because it
+   is an uncommon instruction and will raise an illegal instruction
+   exception when executed in all modes.  */
