Merge branch 'for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/viro/signal
Pull third pile of kernel_execve() patches from Al Viro: "The last bits of infrastructure for kernel_thread() et.al., with alpha/arm/x86 use of those. Plus sanitizing the asm glue and do_notify_resume() on alpha, fixing the "disabled irq while running task_work stuff" breakage there. At that point the rest of kernel_thread/kernel_execve/sys_execve work can be done independently for different architectures. The only pending bits that do depend on having all architectures converted are restrictred to fs/* and kernel/* - that'll obviously have to wait for the next cycle. I thought we'd have to wait for all of them done before we start eliminating the longjump-style insanity in kernel_execve(), but it turned out there's a very simple way to do that without flagday-style changes." * 'for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/viro/signal: alpha: switch to saner kernel_execve() semantics arm: switch to saner kernel_execve() semantics x86, um: convert to saner kernel_execve() semantics infrastructure for saner ret_from_kernel_thread semantics make sure that kernel_thread() callbacks call do_exit() themselves make sure that we always have a return path from kernel_execve() ppc: eeh_event should just use kthread_run() don't bother with kernel_thread/kernel_execve for launching linuxrc alpha: get rid of switch_stack argument of do_work_pending() alpha: don't bother passing switch_stack separately from regs alpha: take SIGPENDING/NOTIFY_RESUME loop into signal.c alpha: simplify TIF_NEED_RESCHED handling
