Thanks. Shaggy told me what I think is happening should not be for
following reasons.

"The process doesn't receive the signal in the
kernel unless it specifically checks for it, or it exits a system call.
There shouldn't be a spinlock held in either situation.
"

I will update the bug as well.

Regards,

Shirish
