These patches should not change the current behaviour in this case.
We never try to re-target the thread-specific signals. Note that
retarget_shared_pending() checks ->signal->shared_pending only.

Yes, and it won't be.

Btw, we do not need to distribute SIGKILL too, we can change
retarget_shared_pending() to remove SIGKILL from shared_pending.
But this only matters when the caller is exit_signals(), and in
this case it should likely notice signal_group_exit() unless
SIGKILL (in unlikely case) it comes in between.

Or I misunderstood?
