Oleg, what guarantees the RCU free of task-struct and sighand?

The only RCU I can find is delayed_put_task_struct() but that's not
often used. TASK_DEAD etc. use regular put_task_struct() and that
doesn't seem to involve RCU.

Could be I'm a moron, its Monday, and its relatively early, so I'll go
have another look..
