send_sigio_to_task: sanitize the usage of fown->signum
Oleg Nesterov [Tue, 16 Jun 2009 22:27:10 +0000 (00:27 +0200)]
send_sigio_to_task() reads fown->signum several times, we can race with
F_SETSIG which changes ->signum lockless.  In theory, this can fool
security checks or we can call group_send_sig_info() with the wrong
->si_signo which does not match "int sig".

Change the code to cache ->signum.
