[PATCH] remove unneeded SI_TIMER checks
Oleg Nesterov [Sun, 30 Oct 2005 23:03:46 +0000 (15:03 -0800)]
This patch removes checks for ->si_code == SI_TIMER from send_signal,
specific_send_sig_info, __group_send_sig_info.

I think posix-timers.c used these functions some time ago, now it sends
signals via send_{,group_}sigqueue, so these hooks are unneeded.
