Thank you Andrew for pointing that out! Sorry that I didn't notice Al
Viro's nice clean ups.

The changes are all orthogonal and apply cleanly except "epoll: pull
fatal signal checks into ep_send_events()". The conflict is trivial
and the following patch should cleanly apply to linux-next/master (I
didn't move the initialization of `res = 0` after the new branch to
keep it simple).

FWIW, I also stress-tested the patch series applied on top of
linux-next/master for a couple of hours.

Could you please let me know whether I should send a V2 of the patch
series for linux-next? Thanks!

Subject: [PATCH linux-next] epoll: pull fatal signal checks into
ep_send_events()

To simplify the code, pull in checking the fatal signals into
ep_send_events(). ep_send_events() is called only from ep_poll().

Note that, previously, we were always checking fatal events, but
it is checked only if eavail is true. This should be fine because
the goal of that check is to quickly return from epoll_wait() when
there is a pending fatal signal.
