Ok I read some more about this, and I guess you go through process exit
and then eventually close. But I'm not sure.

The code in drm_sched_entity_fini also looks strange: You unpark the
scheduler thread before you remove all the IBs. At least from the comment
that doesn't sound like what you want to do.

But in general, PF_SIGNALED is really something deeply internal to the
core (used for some book-keeping and accounting). The drm scheduler is the
only thing looking at it, so smells like a layering violation. I suspect
(but without knowing what you're actually trying to achive here can't be
sure) you want to look at something else.

E.g. PF_EXITING seems to be used in a lot more places to cancel stuff
that's no longer relevant when a task exits, not PF_SIGNALED. There's the
TIF_MEMDIE flag if you're hacking around issues with the oom-killer.

This here on the other hand looks really fragile, and probably only does
what you want to do by accident.
