SubjectRe: [PATCH] signal: remove the wrong signal_pending() check in restore_user_sigmask()

I don't think so but lets discuss this later.

Heh. apparently you do not read my emails ;)

This is what I proposed in my very 1st email, and I even showed the patch
and the code with the patch applied twice. Let me do this again.

Let me show the code with the patch applied. I am using epoll_pwait() as an
example because it looks very simple.

static inline void set_restore_sigmask(void)
// WARN_ON(!TIF_SIGPENDING) was removed by this patch
current->restore_sigmask = true;

int set_xxx(const sigset_t __user *umask, size_t sigsetsize)
sigset_t *kmask;

if (!umask)
return 0;
if (sigsetsize != sizeof(sigset_t))
return -EINVAL;
if (copy_from_user(kmask, umask, sizeof(sigset_t)))
return -EFAULT;

// we can safely modify ->saved_sigmask/restore_sigmask, they has no meaning
// until the syscall returns.
current->saved_sigmask = current->blocked;

return 0;

void update_xxx(bool interrupted)
// the main reason for this helper is WARN_ON(!TIF_SIGPENDING) which was "moved"
// from set_restore_sigmask() above.
if (interrupted)

SYSCALL_DEFINE6(epoll_pwait, int, epfd, struct epoll_event __user *, events,
int, maxevents, int, timeout, const sigset_t __user *, sigmask,
size_t, sigsetsize)
int error;

error = set_xxx(sigmask, sigsetsize);
if (error)
return error;

error = do_epoll_wait(epfd, events, maxevents, timeout);
update_xxx(error == -EINTR);

return error;
