I'm not sure this is correct to say so. Imagine you want to send
a SIGKILL to a cgroup, you would expect all tasks to die and the
cgroup to become empty. right ?

but if a task is doing clone() while it's being killed by this cgroup
signal subsystem, we can miss the child. This is because there's a
small window in copy_process() where the child is in the cgroup and
not visible yet.

copy_process()
cgroup_fork()
do stuff
cgroup_fork_callbacks()

cgroup_post_fork()
put new task in the list.

( I didn't dig too much the code, though. So I might be missing
something )

So if we want to send the signal to all tasks in the cgroup, we need
to track the new tasks with a fork callback, just like the freezer :

static void signal_fork(struct cgroup_subsys *ss, struct task_struct *task)
{

}

and, of course, we need to keep somewhere the signal number we need to
send.


All this depends on how we want the cgroup signal subsystem to behave.
It could be brainless of course, but it seems to me that the biggest
benefit of such a subsystem is to use the cgroup capability to track
new tasks coming in.

Cheers,

C.
