_We_ have nothing pending. Please describe it in a factual way and not like
you are running the code yourself.

What you want to describe is:

If a task calls cpu_chill() and gets woken up by a regular or spurious
wakeup and has a signal pending, then it exits the sleep loop in
do_nanosleep() and sets up the restart block. If restart->nanosleep.type is
not TI_NONE then this results in accessing a stale user pointer from a
previously interrupted syscall and a copy to user based on the stale
pointer or a BUG() when 'type' is not supported in nanosleep_copyout().

hmm?
