Not just the fd leak, it causes problems here with the addition of the
new test userfaultfd_sig_test(). Since the original vma registration
persists in the parent, subsequent registration in userfaultfd_events_test()
fails with 'EBUSY' error, as userfault implementation does not allow
registering same vma with another uffd, while one exists.

Therefore, will need this change. I could just leave this fix here along
with the rest of the changes, will that be ok?
