  ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Did you mean restore_saved_sigmask_unless() introduced by this patch?

If yes:

I don't think so,

This will re-introduce the problem fixed by the previous patch.

Yes, do_signal() does restore_saved_sigmask() at the end, but only if
get_signal() returns false.

This means that restore_saved_sigmask()->set_current_blocked(saved_mask) should
restore ->blocked (and may be clear TIF_SIGPENDING) before ret-from-syscall.

Or I misunderstood?

Oleg.
