Subject[PATCH 00/10] Removing SEND_SIG_FORCED

SEND_SIG_FORCED has two functions. It forces a pid namespace init to
receive a signal it would ordinarily ignore, and it causes a siginfo to
not be allocated for a signal.

This patchset makes __send_signal a little bit smarter so that it can
detect when to apply these optimizations and the senders of signals
don't have to worry about them.

The coupling of forcing a signal to the pid namespace init and not
allocating siginfo resulted in serveral minor bugs where a signal
sent by the kernel was marked SI_USER suggesting another userspace
process sent that signal. I have cc'd linux-api in case anyone cares
about these minor userspace visible differences.

Unless someone notices a bug I intend to merge these changes through my
tree during the next merge window. While there are numerous fixes here
none of them appear to be the kind that fixes real world problems so I
don't see any urgency here.

Please look read and send my your review. I will be out for about a
week so I will address any comments when I get back.

Eric W. Biederman (10):
signal: Always ignore SIGKILL and SIGSTOP sent to the global init
signal: Properly deliver SIGILL from uprobes
signal: Properly deliver SIGSEGV from x86 uprobes
signal: Always deliver the kernel's SIGKILL and SIGSTOP to a pid namespace init
signal: send_sig_all no longer needs SEND_SIG_FORCED
signal: Remove the siginfo paramater from kernel_dqueue_signal
signal: Don't send siginfo to kthreads.
signal: Never allocate siginfo for SIGKILL or SIGSTOP
signal: Remove SEND_SIG_FORCED
