I see the general problem now. In this particular case
dma_fence_default_wait
and the caller of wake_up_state use lock for protecting wake up delivery
and wakeup condition
and also dma_fence_default_wait retests the wakeup condition on entry.
But obviously it's a bad practice to rely on API's internal
implementation for assumptions
in client code.

It actually means never wake

Agree, fatal_signal_pending should be part of the wait function.
