Subject[PATCH 1/4] for 2.6.18, revert "Drop tasklist lock in do_sched_setscheduler"
sched_setscheduler() looks at ->signal->rlim[]. It is unsafe do dereference
->signal unless tasklist_lock or ->siglock is held (or p == current). We pin
the task structure, but this can't prevent from release_task()->__exit_signal()
which sets ->signal = NULL.

Restore tasklist_lock across the setscheduler call.
