fork/exit: move tty_kref_put() outside of __cleanup_signal()
Oleg Nesterov [Wed, 26 May 2010 21:43:15 +0000 (14:43 -0700)]
tty_kref_put() has two callsites in copy_process() paths,

1. if copy_process() suceeds it is called before we copy
   signal->tty from parent

2. otherwise it is called from __cleanup_signal() under
   bad_fork_cleanup_signal: label

In both cases tty_kref_put() is not right and unneeded because we don't
have the balancing tty_kref_get().  Fortunately, this is harmless because
this can only happen without CLONE_THREAD, and in this case signal->tty
must be NULL.

Remove tty_kref_put() from copy_process() and __cleanup_signal(), and
change another caller of __cleanup_signal(), __exit_signal(), to call
tty_kref_put() by hand.

I hope this change makes sense by itself, but it is also needed to make
->signal refcountable.
