Pull ucounts fixes from Eric Biederman:
"There has been one very hard to track down bug in the ucount code that
we have been tracking since roughly v5.14 was released. Alex managed
to find a reliable reproducer a few days ago and then I was able to
instrument the code and figure out what the issue was.
It turns out the sigqueue_alloc single atomic operation optimization
did not play nicely with ucounts multiple level rlimits. It turned out
that either sigqueue_alloc or sigqueue_free could be operating on
multiple levels and trigger the conditions for the optimization on
more than one level at the same time.
To deal with that situation I have introduced inc_rlimit_get_ucounts
and dec_rlimit_put_ucounts that just focuses on the optimization and
the rlimit and ucount changes.
While looking into the big bug I found I couple of other little issues
so I am including those fixes here as well.
When I have time I would very much like to dig into process ownership
of the shared signal queue and see if we could pick a single owner for
the entire queue so that all of the rlimits can count to that owner.
That should entirely remove the need to call get_ucounts and
put_ucounts in sigqueue_alloc and sigqueue_free. It is difficult
because Linux unlike POSIX supports setuid that works on a single
