Subject: [PATCH RT] signal: Prevent double-free of user struct
Date: Tue,  7 Apr 2020 10:54:13 +0100
Message-ID: <20200407095413.30039-1-matt@codeblueprint.co.uk> (raw)

The way user struct reference counting works changed significantly with,

  fda31c50292a ("signal: avoid double atomic counter increments for user accounting")

Now user structs are only freed once the last pending signal is
dequeued. Make sigqueue_free_current() follow this new convention to
avoid freeing the user struct multiple times and triggering this
warning:

 refcount_t: underflow; use-after-free.
