Ouch... I think I see what you mean. Let me see if I got it right:
timer->sigq is *not* freed by collect_signal(); it's done by
release_posix_timer() instead, under siglock. Frankly, this
/*
* If it is queued it will be freed when dequeued,
* like the "regular" sigqueue.
*/
if (!list_empty(&q->list))
q = NULL;
in sigqueue_free() smells like it's asking for races. Sigh...
