uml: definitively kill subprocesses on panic
In a stock kernel, poweroff a user mode linux guest ( running in skas0 mode) will halt the host linux. I think the reason is the kernel thread abort because of a bug. Then the sys_reboot in process of user mode linux guest is not trapped by the user mode linux kernel and is executed by host. I think it is better to make sure all of our children process to quit when user mode linux kernel abort. [ jdike - the kernel process needs to ignore SIGTERM, plus the waitpid/kill loop is needed to make sure that all of our children are dead before the kernel exits ] Signed-off-by: Lepton Wu <ytht.net@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Jeff Dike <jdike@linux.intel.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org>
