audit: Call tty_audit_push_task() outside preempt disabled
While auditing all tasklist_lock read_lock sites I stumbled over the following call chain: audit_prepare_user_tty() read_lock(&tasklist_lock); tty_audit_push_task(); mutex_lock(&buf->mutex); --> buf->mutex is locked with preemption disabled. Solve this by acquiring a reference to the task struct under rcu_read_lock and call tty_audit_push_task outside of the preempt disabled region. Move all code which needs to be protected by sighand lock into tty_audit_push_task() and use lock/unlock_sighand as we do not hold tasklist_lock.
