Subject[PATCH 6/6] freezer: kill unused set_freezable_with_signal()
Date
There's no in-kernel user of set_freezable_with_signal() and there's
no plan to add one. Mixing TIF_SIGPENDING with kernel threads can
lead to nasty corner cases as kernel threads never travel signal
delivery path on their own.

e.g. the current implementation is buggy in the cancelation path of
__thaw_task(). It calls recalc_sigpending_and_wake() in an attempt to
clear TIF_SIGPENDING but the function never clears it regardless of
sigpending state. This means that signallable freezable kthreads may
continue executing with !freezing() && stuck TIF_SIGPENDING, which can
be troublesome.

This patch removes set_freezable_with_signal() along with
PF_FREEZER_NOSIG and recalc_sigpending*() calls in freezer. User
tasks get TIF_SIGPENDING, kernel tasks get woken up and the spurious
sigpending is dealt with in the usual signal delivery path.
