__fput does not have a return code. I don't see the return code of
release being used anywhere. So any return code is going to be lost.
So maybe something that talks to the drm/kernel layer but don't expect
your system call to be restarted, which is what -ERESTARTSYS asks for.

Hmm. When looking at the code that is merged versus whatever your
patch is against it gets even clearer. The -ERESTARTSYS
return code doesn't even get out of drm_sched_entity_fini.

Caring at all about process state at that point is wrong, as except for
being in ``process'' context where you can sleep nothing is connected to
a process.

Let me respectfully suggest that the wait_event_killable on that code
path is wrong. Possibly you want a wait_event_timeout if you are very
nice. But the code already has the logic necessary to handle what
happens if it can't sleep.

So I think the justification needs to be why you are trying to sleep
there at all.

The progress guarantee needs to come from the gpu layer or the AMD
driver not from someone getting impatient and sending SIGKILL to
a dead process.
