SubjectRe: [PATCH -mm 2/3] nbd: nbd_thread_recv: remove the buggy kernel_dequeue_signal()
Hi Oleg,

This signal handling for a userspace process is implicitly implemented
for several years already through the timeout handling. This is nothing
new and could potentially break userspace if someone disconnects NBD
using the kill command. As we expose the appropriate PID of the process
as well this is possible to be used in an init script.

So I am not sure about this patch yet.

Yes indeed. This has to be fixed as well, thanks.

Best Regards,

Markus
