The patch I am referring to is your pr_info patch (above). I'm not
talking about any other patches at the moment; I just want to
understand the example dmesg output you copied into your email.

With that in mind, the message above seems to indicate that
do_acct_process() has been invoked with f_cred, real_cred, and cred
all pointing to the same credentials struct, yes?

The only place in the code that generates this message is the bit of
code that you patches in using the pr_info() patch (above), yes? If
so, that would seem to indicate that the same task is calling
do_acct_process() twice, yes? I may be fundamentally misunderstanding
something about process accounting, but I though do_acct_process()
would only be called once for a given task - while it was exiting.
Yes, no?

I'd like to focus on understanding the dmesg output you shared first,
because it doesn't seem to make sense to me.
