task is known and handed in to the function. So why do you want to reverse
map mm?

for_each_thread(task, ...) is what you want. The only thing to verify is
whether you can lock the tasks sighand lock there. And then it's enough to
set/clear the TIF bit and let it take effect at the next context switch.
