Thank Mike and Peter for further explanation. I get it.

Yes, The race indeed will result in the issue.

but as for the patch Andrea has posted. I still has a little worry.

The patch use call_rcu to delay free the task_struct, but It is possible to free the task_struct
ahead of get_mem_cgroup_from_mm. is it right?

Thanks,
