Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 4.19 383/671] signal/bpfilter: Fix bpfilter_kernl to use send_sig not force_sig
Date: Thu, 16 Jan 2020 12:00:21 -0500
Message-ID: <20200116170509.12787-120-sashal@kernel.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20200116170509.12787-1-sashal@kernel.org>

From: "Eric W. Biederman" <ebiederm@xmission.com>

[ Upstream commit 1dfd1711de2952fd1bfeea7152bd1687a4eea771 ]

The locking in force_sig_info is not prepared to deal with
a task that exits or execs (as sighand may change).  As force_sig
is only built to handle synchronous exceptions.

Further the function force_sig_info changes the signal state if the
signal is ignored, or blocked or if SIGNAL_UNKILLABLE will prevent the
delivery of the signal.  The signal SIGKILL can not be ignored and can
not be blocked and SIGNAL_UNKILLABLE won't prevent it from being

So using force_sig rather than send_sig for SIGKILL is pointless.

Because it won't impact the sending of the signal and and because
using force_sig is wrong, replace force_sig with send_sig.
