SubjectRe: [PATCH] prctl: add PR_[GS]ET_PDEATHSIG_PROC

I think the patch is technically correct,

but I am still not sure this is right... at least I can't understand the
"without race conditions" above.

IOW, the child can do prctl(PR_SET_PDEATHSIG_PROC, SIGKILL) right after fork(),
why this is not enough to kill a whole subtree without race conditions?

OTOH. If you want to kill a whole sub-tree then perhaps the exiting process
should simply send the ->pdeath_signal_proc to the whole sub-tree? Not that
I really think this makes more sense, but if we add the new API we should
discuss everything we can.

Say, CLONE_PARENT. Should it succeed if ->pdeath_signal_proc != 0 ?

Anyway, I think this patch needs more reviewers. Let me add Linus and
Michael. Again, I am not worried about correctness, the patch is simple,
but the new API always needs a thorough discussion.
