We can certainly remove more siglock's which were previously
needed to access ->signal.

This particular one is just wrong. We need task_lock(group_leader)
to read signal->rlim atomically. However, it is not trivial to do
this correctly. Probably we should ignore this minor problem.

In any case, this ->siglock buys nothing today.
