(top-posting fixed).

Why is a -stable backport needed?  I see some talk above about lost
signals but it is unclear whether these are being observed after fixing
the regression caused by 854a6ed56839a.

IOW, can we please have a changelog which has a clear and complete
description of the user-visible effects of the change.

And please Cc Oleg.

I guess Deepa's commit messages wasn't clear...
I suggest prepending this as the first paragraph to Deepa's
original message:

  This fixes a bug introduced with 854a6ed56839a which caused
  EINTR to not be reported to userspace on epoll_pwait.  Failure
  to report EINTR to userspace caused problems with user code
  which relies on EINTR to run signal handlers.

This is not what the patch fixed.

The notable change is userspace is that now whenever a signal is
delivered, the return value is adjusted to reflect the signal
delivery.
Prior to this patch, there was a window, however small it might have
been, when the signal was delivered but the errono was not adjusted
appropriately.
This is because of the regression caused by 854a6ed56839a, which
extended the window of delivery of signals that was delivered to
userspace.
The patch also fixes more than sys_epoll_pwait().

I will post a follow up patch.

Also the commit message was brief because the issue was explained in
the link that was quoted in the commit message.
