I didn't read the patch in details, but a couple of nits...

This needs spin_lock_irq(), ->siglock is irq-safe.

The same for other lockers, but:

This is called by fs/proc. In this case nothing protects us from
release_task(), we can hit ->siglock == NULL (or we can race with
exec which changes ->sighand in theory).

This needs lock_task_sighand() (it can fail). Perhaps something
else have the same problem...

If the task is current and it is not exiting, or it is the new
child (sched_autogroup_fork), then it is safe to use ->siglock

And a pure cosmetic nit,

This looks a bit confusing. We do not need current->sighand->siglock
to set sig->autogroup. Nobody except us can see this new signal_struct,
and in any case current->sighand->siglock can't help.

It is needed for autogroup_kref_get(), but we already have autogroup_get().
I'd suggest

void sched_autogroup_fork(struct signal_struct *sig)
sig->autogroup = autogroup_get(current);
