Subject[PATCH] sys_unshare: remove a broken CLONE_SIGHAND code
sys_unshare(CLONE_SIGHAND) is broken, the code under 'if (new_sigh)' is
never executed but very wrong. Just remove it to avoid a confusion,
task_lock() has nothing to do with ->sighand changing.
Also, change the comment in unshare_sighand(). Yes, CLONE_THREAD implies
CLONE_SIGHAND, but still it looks confusing. Also, we don't need to check
current->sighand != NULL.
