All the best wishes to you and your son. I hope he will get well soon.

And sorry for not missing the issue in the review. The reason turns
out that bprm_mm_init is called after prepare_bprm_creds, but there
are error pathes between those where free_bprm is called up with
cred != NULL and mm == NULL, but the mutex not locked.

I figured out a possible fix for the problem that was pointed out:
