Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 4.19 022/158] signal/cifs: Fix cifs_put_tcp_session to call send_sig instead of force_sig
Date
From: "Eric W. Biederman" <ebiederm@xmission.com>

[ Upstream commit 72abe3bcf0911d69b46c1e8bdb5612675e0ac42c ]

The locking in force_sig_info is not prepared to deal with a task that
exits or execs (as sighand may change). The is not a locking problem
in force_sig as force_sig is only built to handle synchronous
exceptions.

Further the function force_sig_info changes the signal state if the
signal is ignored, or blocked or if SIGNAL_UNKILLABLE will prevent the
delivery of the signal. The signal SIGKILL can not be ignored and can
not be blocked and SIGNAL_UNKILLABLE won't prevent it from being
delivered.

So using force_sig rather than send_sig for SIGKILL is confusing
and pointless.

Because it won't impact the sending of the signal and and because
using force_sig is wrong, replace force_sig with send_sig.
