kernel/signal.c: remove the no longer needed SIGNAL_UNKILLABLE check in complete_signal()
complete_signal() checks SIGNAL_UNKILLABLE before it starts to destroy the thread group, today this is wrong in many ways. If nothing else, fatal_signal_pending() should always imply that the whole thread group (except ->group_exit_task if it is not NULL) is killed, this check breaks the rule. After the previous changes we can rely on sig_task_ignored(); sig_fatal(sig) && SIGNAL_UNKILLABLE can only be true if we actually want to kill this task and sig == SIGKILL OR it is traced and debugger can intercept the signal. This should hopefully fix the problem reported by Dmitry. This test-case static int init(void *arg) { for (;;) pause(); } int main(void) { char stack[16 * 1024]; for (;;) { int pid = clone(init, stack + sizeof(stack)/2, CLONE_NEWPID | SIGCHLD, NULL); assert(pid > 0); assert(ptrace(PTRACE_ATTACH, pid, 0, 0) == 0); assert(waitpid(-1, NULL, WSTOPPED) == pid); assert(ptrace(PTRACE_DETACH, pid, 0, SIGSTOP) == 0); assert(syscall(__NR_tkill, pid, SIGKILL) == 0); assert(pid == wait(NULL)); } } triggers the WARN_ON_ONCE(!(task->jobctl & JOBCTL_STOP_PENDING)) in task_participate_group_stop(). do_signal_stop()->signal_group_exit() checks SIGNAL_GROUP_EXIT and return false, but task_set_jobctl_pending() checks fatal_signal_pending() and does not set JOBCTL_STOP_PENDING. And his should fix the minor security problem reported by Kyle, SECCOMP_RET_TRACE can miss fatal_signal_pending() the same way if the task is the root of a pid namespace.
