Well, I guess this will work in practice, but in theory this is racy.

Suppose that signal->live == 2 and both threads exit in parallel. They
both can see tsk->signal->live == 2 before atomic_dec_and_test().

If you are fine with this race I won't object, but please add a comment.

But why can't you simply do

--- x/kernel/exit.c
+++ x/kernel/exit.c
@@ -786,6 +786,8 @@ void __noreturn do_exit(long code)
acct_update_integrals(tsk);
group_dead = atomic_dec_and_test(&tsk->signal->live);
if (group_dead) {
+ if (unlikely(is_global_init(tsk)
+ panic(...);
#ifdef CONFIG_POSIX_TIMERS
hrtimer_cancel(&tsk->signal->real_timer);
exit_itimers(tsk->signal);

?

Oleg.
