SubjectRe: [PATCH 4.19 026/271] signal/cifs: Fix cifs_put_tcp_session to call send_sig instead of force_sig
Note that this patch causes a regression (removing cifs module fails,
due to unmount leaking a thread with this change).

We are testing a workaround to cifs.ko which would be needed if this
patch were to be backported.
