SubjectRe: Q: check_unsafe_exec() races (Was: [PATCH 2/4] fix setuid sometimes doesn't)

Just a couple of things on that:

Minor bisectability issue: the third patch, which introduces
int unshare_fs_struct(void), needs to return 0 when it succeeds:
that gets corrected in the fourth patch.

Lockdep objects to how check_unsafe_exec nests write_lock(&p->fs_lock)
inside lock_task_sighand(p, &flags). It's right: we sometimes take
sighand->siglock in interrupt, so if such an interrupt occurred just
after you take fs_lock elsewhere, that could deadlock with this. It
seems happy with taking fs_lock just outside the lock_task_sighand.

Otherwise it looks good to me, except I keep worrying about those
EAGAINs. The more so once I noticed current->cred_exec_mutex is
already being used to handle a similar issue with ptrace. What
do you think of this rather smaller patch? which I'd much rather
send after having slept on it, since it may be embarrassingly and
obviously wrong, but tomorrow may be too late ...
