Subject[PATCH 3/8] vfork: make it killable
Make vfork() killable().

Change clone_vfork_finish() to do wait_for_completion_killable().
If it fails we do not return to the user-mode and never touch mm
shared with our child.

However, we should clear child->vfork_done before return.
complete_vfork_done() and clone_vfork_finish() use xchg-and-check
to avoid the races with each other. If clone_vfork_finish() fails
to clear child->vfork_done it does another wait_for_completion() to
ensure the child finishes complete-in-progress.

NOTE: this and the next patches do not affect in-kernel users of
CLONE_VFORK, kernel threads run with all signals ignored, including
SIGKILL/SIGSTOP.
