Subject[patch 1/3] audit: Call tty_audit_push_task() outside preempt disabled
While auditing all tasklist_lock read_lock sites I stumbled over the
following call chain:

audit_prepare_user_tty()
read_lock(&tasklist_lock);
tty_audit_push_task();
mutex_lock(&buf->mutex);

--> buf->mutex is locked with preemption disabled.

Solve this by acquiring a reference to the task struct under
rcu_read_lock and call tty_audit_push_task outside of the preempt
disabled region.

Move all code which needs to be protected by sighand lock into
tty_audit_push_task() and use lock/unlock_sighand as we do not hold
tasklist_lock.
