Given Oleg's earlier comment about the scheduler having special cases
for signals I might be wrong. But in general there is a pattern:

for (;;) {
set_current_state(TASK_UNINTERRUPTIBLE);
if (loop_is_done())
break;
schedule();
}
set_current_state(TASK_RUNNING);

If you violate that pattern by testing for a condition without
having first set your task as TASK_UNINTERRUPTIBLE (or whatever your
sleep state is). Then it is possible to miss a wake-up that
tests the condidtion.

Thus I am quite concerned that there is a subtle corner case where
you can miss a wakeup and not retest fatal_signal_pending().

Given that there is is a timeout the worst case might have you sleep
MAX_SCHEDULE_TIMEOUT instead of indefinitely.

Without a comment why this is safe, or having fatal_signal_pending
check integrated into dma_fence_wait_timeout I am not comfortable
with this loop.
