Subject[PATCH v5 5/6] fork: Have new threads join on-going signal group stops
There are only two signals that are delivered to every member of a
signal group: SIGSTOP and SIGKILL. Signal delivery requires every
signal appear to be delivered either before or after a clone syscall.
SIGKILL terminates the clone so does not need to be considered. Which
leaves only SIGSTOP that needs to be considered when creating new
threads.

Today in the event of a group stop TIF_SIGPENDING will get set and the
fork will restart ensuring the fork syscall participates in the group
stop.

A fork (especially of a process with a lot of memory) is one of the
most expensive system so we really only want to restart a fork when
necessary.

It is easy so check to see if a SIGSTOP is ongoing and have the new
thread join it immediate after the clone completes. Making it appear
the clone completed happened just before the SIGSTOP.

The calculate_sigpending function will see the bits set in jobctl and
set TIF_SIGPENDING to ensure the new task takes the slow path to userspace.

V2: The call to task_join_group_stop was moved before the new task is
added to the thread group list. This should not matter as
sighand->siglock is held over both the addition of the threads,
the call to task_join_group_stop and do_signal_stop. But the change
is trivial and it is one less thing to worry about when reading
the code.
