This BUG_ON() seems unnecessary, given the i++ directly above it.

Should we be setting failed_ss here? Doesn't that mean that if all
subsystems pass the can_attach() check but the first one fails a
can_attach_task() check, we don't call any cancel_attach() methods?

What are the rollback semantics for failing a can_attach_task() check?

Can this race with an exiting/execing group leader?

The check for PF_EXITING doesn't apply to group leaders?

Maybe turn these returns into "goto out;" statements and put the
unlock after the out: label?
