[PATCH 4/6] freezer: use lock_task_sighand() in fake_signal_wake_up()

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


cgroup_freezer calls freeze_task() without holding tasklist_lock and,
if the task is exiting, its ->sighand may be gone by the time
fake_signal_wake_up() is called.  Use lock_task_sighand() instead of
accessing ->sighand directly.
