If I understand correctly you propose to add a new LSM hook without return
value and place it here:

diff --git a/kernel/signal.c b/kernel/signal.c
index a38b3edc6851..074492d23e98 100644
--- a/kernel/signal.c
+++ b/kernel/signal.c
@@ -2751,6 +2751,8 @@ bool get_signal(struct ksignal *ksig)
                        do_coredump(&ksig->info);
                }

+               // Add the new LSM hook here
+
                /*
                 * Death signals, no core dump.
                 */

Thanks,
John Wood
