See my reply to 2/3,

this patch won't really help in multi-threaded case,

So you want to trigger signal_wake_up() at the end of complete_signal().

Unless you use tkill() you can wake another thread, not the thread blocked
in drm_sched_entity_fini().

And if the whole process is already dying complete_signal() will do nothing
else.
