Not sure too, but I don't think we should worry about badness().

Oh. I forgot this code completely, can't comment.

Can't we ensure that fastpath_timer_check() never do while_each_thread() ?
IOW, if sig->cputime_expires != 0 then ->running must be true.

At least, shouldn't stop_process_timers() clear sig->cputime_expires ?
