    BTW jffs2_garbage_collect_thread() is a horrible abomination :-)
    Its use of SIGSTOP and SIGHUP is *totally* gratuitous & unwarranted.
    It does use SIGKILL, but simply as a stop-notification from umount
    of the corresponding jffs2 partition.

    I think all the signal handling there can be removed; then it needs
    to undergo conversion to kthread (it uses horrible locks and
    completions to handle its exit) -- I'll put it in my endless
    kernel-cleanups-todo-list ...
