[PATCH 0/2] SA_IMMUTABLE fixes
From: Eric W. Biederman
Date: Thu Nov 18 2021 - 16:58:26 EST
SA_IMMUTABLE fixed issues with force_sig_seccomp and the introduction
for force_sig_fatal where the exit previously could not be interrupted
but now it can. Unfortunately it added that behavior to all force_sig
functions under the right conditions which debuggers usage of SIG_TRAP
and debuggers handling of SIGSEGV.
Solve that by limiting SA_IMMUTABLE to just the cases that historically
debuggers have not been able to intercept.
The first patch changes force_sig_info_to_task to take a flag
that requests which behavior is desired.
The second patch adds force_exit_sig which replaces force_fatal_sig
in the cases where historically userspace would only find out about
the ``signal'' after the process has exited.
The first one with the hunk changing force_fatal_sig removed should be
suitable for backporting to v5.15. v5.15 does not implement
This should be enough to fix the regressions.
Kyle if you can double check me that I have properly fixed these issues
that would be appreciated.
Any other review or suggestions to improve the names would be
appreciated. I think I have named things reasonably well but I am very
close to the code so it is easy for me to miss things.

signal: Don't always set SA_IMMUTABLE for forced signals
signal: Replace force_fatal_sig with force_exit_sig when in doubt
