Yes to both.

The pattern where both the if and the else branch return is fairly
uncommon even in this file. Otherwise you would need to also argue that
functions like:

int send_sig_info(int sig, struct siginfo *info, struct task_struct *p)
{
/*
* Make sure legacy kernel users don't send in bad values
* (normal paths check this in check_kill_permission).
*/
if (!valid_signal(sig))
return -EINVAL;

return do_send_sig_info(sig, info, p, false);
}

should really be:

int send_sig_info(int sig, struct siginfo *info, struct task_struct *p)
{
/*
* Make sure legacy kernel users don't send in bad values
* (normal paths check this in check_kill_permission).
*/
if (!valid_signal(sig))
return -EINVAL;
else
return do_send_sig_info(sig, info, p, false);
}

Which I find very uneasy on the eye. Even more so when there are
multiple lines in the else that returns.
