just to clarify... No, sys_poll() path doesn't do remove_wait_queue() until
it returns to user mode, and that is why we can't race with set-exit_code +

pidfd_poll() can race with the exiting task, miss exit_code != 0, and return
zero. However, do_poll() won't block after that and pidfd_poll() will be called
