Subject[PATCH] kernel/signal: Remove no longer required irqsave/restore
Date
From: Anna-Maria Gleixner <anna-maria@linutronix.de>

Commit a841796f11c9 ("signal: align __lock_task_sighand() irq disabling and
RCU") introduced a rcu read side critical section with interrupts
disabled. The changelog suggested that a better long-term fix would be "to
make rt_mutex_unlock() disable irqs when acquiring the rt_mutex structure's
->wait_lock".

This long-term fix has been made in commit 4abf91047cf ("rtmutex: Make >
wait_lock irq safe") for different reason.

Therefore revert commit a841796f11c9 ("signal: align >
__lock_task_sighand() irq disabling and RCU") as the interrupt disable
dance is not longer required.
