Interesting idea, really.
I've thought

1) moving cread_guard_mutex itself
- no increase execve overhead
-> very good
- it also prevent parallel ptrace
-> probably no problem. nobody want parallel debugging
2) move in_exec_mm to signal_struct too
-> very hard. oom-killer can use very few lock because it's called
from various place. now both ->mm and ->in_exec_mm are protected
task_lock() and it help to avoid messy.


So, I've done only (1). I think this restriction effectivly prevent
some theorical execve() resouce smashing attack.

Subject: [PATCH] move cred_guard_mutex from task_struct to signal_struct

Oleg Nesterov pointed out we have to prevent multiple-threads-inside-exec
itself and we can reuse ->cred_guard_mutex for it. Yes, concurrent execve()
has no worth.

Let's move ->cred_guard_mutex from task_struct to signal_struct. It
naturally prevent multiple-threads-inside-exec.
