Description of problem:
I failed to compile 1) while I could compile 2) successfully. 

main() {}

# gcc test1.c
In file included from /usr/include/ucontext.h:28,
                 from test.c:6:
/usr/include/sys/ucontext.h:46: field `_mc' has incomplete type
/usr/include/sys/ucontext.h:49: dereferencing pointer to incomplete type
/usr/include/sys/ucontext.h:49: size of array `_pad' has non-integer type
gcc: Internal compiler error: program cc1 got fatal signal 11

#define _BSD_SOURCE
main() {}

I think the cause is in /usr/include/signal.h.
In signal.h, if __USE_XOPEN_EXTENDED was defined the valuable of 
mcontext_t type is used but the type is not defined without __USE_BSD.
I suppose /usr/include/signal.h should be applied a patch like the

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.gcc -c test1.c
2.gcc -c test2.c
