    No, I think you're right. And I think just fixing send_sig_info() to take
    the tasklist lock is the right thing to do.

    That still leaves force_sig_info() without the tasklist lock, but since
    that is only used for page faults etc synchronous errors, that's fine (if
    we get a synchronous error in the kernel, we have bigger problems than
    signal locking).
