      posix-cpu-timers: workaround to suppress the problems with mt exec · e0a70217
      Oleg Nesterov authored
      
      
      posix-cpu-timers.c correctly assumes that the dying process does
      posix_cpu_timers_exit_group() and removes all !CPUCLOCK_PERTHREAD
      timers from signal->cpu_timers list.
      
      But, it also assumes that timer->it.cpu.task is always the group
      leader, and thus the dead ->task means the dead thread group.
      
      This is obviously not true after de_thread() changes the leader.
      After that almost every posix_cpu_timer_ method has problems.
      
      It is not simple to fix this bug correctly. First of all, I think
      that timer->it.cpu should use struct pid instead of task_struct.
      Also, the locking should be reworked completely. In particular,
      tasklist_lock should not be used at all. This all needs a lot of
      nontrivial and hard-to-test changes.
      
      Change __exit_signal() to do posix_cpu_timers_exit_group() when
      the old leader dies during exec. This is not the fix, just the
      temporary hack to hide the problem for 2.6.37 and stable. IOW,
      this is obviously wrong but this is what we currently have anyway:
      cpu timers do not work after mt exec.
      
      In theory this change adds another race. The exiting leader can
      detach the timers which were attached to the new leader. However,
      the window between de_thread() and release_task() is small, we
      can pretend that sys_timer_create() was called before de_thread().
