Subject[patch 43/58] check_unsafe_exec: s/lock_task_sighand/rcu_read_lock/
2.6.29-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------

From: Oleg Nesterov <oleg@redhat.com>

commit 437f7fdb607f32b737e4da9f14bebcfdac2c90c3 upstream.

write_lock(&current->fs->lock) guarantees we can't wrongly miss
LSM_UNSAFE_SHARE, this is what we care about. Use rcu_read_lock()
instead of ->siglock to iterate over the sub-threads. We must see
all CLONE_THREAD|CLONE_FS threads which didn't pass exit_fs(), it
takes fs->lock too.

With or without this patch we can miss the freshly cloned thread
and set LSM_UNSAFE_SHARE, we don't care.
