Subject[patch 06/28] signalfd: fix interaction with posix-timers
-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Oleg Nesterov <oleg@tv-sign.ru>

dequeue_signal:

if (__SI_TIMER) {
spin_unlock(&tsk->sighand->siglock);
do_schedule_next_timer(info);
spin_lock(&tsk->sighand->siglock);
}
Unless tsk == curent, this is absolutely unsafe: nothing prevents tsk from
exiting. If signalfd was passed to another process, do_schedule_next_timer()
is just wrong.

Add yet another "tsk == current" check into dequeue_signal().

This patch fixes an oopsable bug, but breaks the scheduling of posix timers
if the shared __SI_TIMER signal was fetched via signalfd attached to another
sub-thread. Mostly fixed by the next patch.
