Apologies for not responding to that bit, I was reading quickly
and I missed that bit.

The second patch does not need to land in 5.15.

It is the same problem.  But it only applies to code that was merged
post 5.15.

For 5.15 on force_sig_seccomp is really affected.

For 5.16 there were many calls to do_exit that I turned into signals.
Some of the properly should be oridinary signals and some of them
for correctness purposes can't allow debuggers or userspace to intercept
them.

The second patch went through and modified everything that was
non-interceptible before 5.16 to be non-interceptible in 5.16.  Where
that is not necessary we can relax things later.

But for 5.15 only the one patch needs to be applied.
