Yes, but if there is some weird userspace out there that depends on
pdeath_signal handling in the same corner case, then we'll break that
just like we did, except it'll be even harder to track down, because
debugging a wrong pdeath_signal will be even more subtle, and it'll
fail only when it's supposed to be exiting...

yeah i'd like to find some time to track that down too.

That sounds good, I'm only saying that the core bug is the wrong setting
of secureexec, and you've switched both setting of pdeath and
dumpability to using secureexec, so it stands to reason that setting of
pdeath is still wrong in these cases.
