signalfd: fix interaction with posix-timers
dequeue_signal: if (__SI_TIMER) { spin_unlock(&tsk->sighand->siglock); do_schedule_next_timer(info); spin_lock(&tsk->sighand->siglock); } Unless tsk == curent, this is absolutely unsafe: nothing prevents tsk from exiting. If signalfd was passed to another process, do_schedule_next_timer() is just wrong. Add yet another "tsk == current" check into dequeue_signal(). This patch fixes an oopsable bug, but breaks the scheduling of posix timers if the shared __SI_TIMER signal was fetched via signalfd attached to another sub-thread. Mostly fixed by the next patch.
