This is a signal delivery path AFAIU (get_signal) and the coredumping
happens before do_exit. My understanding is that that unlinking
happens from cgroup_exit. So either I am misreading the backtrace or
there is some other way to leave cgroups or there is something more
going on.

JFTR I am not really disputing the patch but I simply do not understand
how the problem really happened.
