Reverting this patchset [1] from today's linux-next fixed a splat below. The
splat looks like a false positive anyway because the existing locking dependency
chains from the task #1 here:

&s->seqcount#2 ---> pidmap_lock

[ 528.078061][ T7867] -> #1 (pidmap_lock){....}-{2:2}:
[ 528.078078][ T7867] lock_acquire+0x10c/0x560

[ 528.078182][ T7867] ret_from_kernel_thread+0x5c/0x80

It is write_seqlock(&sig->stats_lock) in __exit_signal(), but the &s->seqcount#2
in read_mems_allowed_begin() is read_seqcount_begin(&current->mems_allowed_seq),
so there should be no deadlock?
