Subject[PATCH] kernel/hung_task.c: Monitor killed tasks.
Date
syzbot's second top report is "no output from test machine" where the
userspace process failed to spawn a new test process for 300 seconds
for some reason. One of reasons which can result in this report is that
an already spawned test process was unable to terminate (e.g. trapped at
an unkillable retry loop due to some bug) after SIGKILL was sent to that
process. Therefore, reporting when a thread is failing to terminate
despite a fatal signal is pending would give us more useful information.

This version shares existing sysctl settings (e.g. check interval,
timeout, whether to panic) used for detecting TASK_UNINTERRUPTIBLE
threads, for I don't know whether people want to use a new kernel
config option and different sysctl settings for monitoring killed
threads.
