We send the signal to the current task. Can this fire outside of the
current task context? E.g. in interrupt/softirq/etc? And then we will
send the signal to the current task. Watchpoint can be set to
userspace address and then something asynchronous (some IO completion)
that does not belong to this task access the userspace address (is
this possible?). But watchpoints can also be set to kernel addresses,
then another context can definitely access it.
(1) can this happen? maybe perf context is somehow disabled when !in_task()?
(2) if yes, what is the desired behavior?
