Ah, I see what happened, I think .... the locking used to be inside
collect_sigign_sigcatch, and you moved it out into task_sig ... but
there were two callers of collect_sigign_sigcatch, the other one being
proc_pid_stat ... which now needs to have appropriate locking added to
it as well to match the change ... I'll see if I can get something
together that works for that.
