Subject: [GIT PULL] thread fixes v5.6-rc5

Hey Linus,

/* Summary */
Here are a few hopefully uncontroversial fixes:

- Use RCU_INIT_POINTER() when initializing some rcu protected members in
  task_struct to fix some sparse warnings.
- Add pidfd_fdinfo_test binary to .gitignore file

/* Testing */
All patches have seen exposure in linux-next and are based on v5.6-rc1.
No regressions or build warning have been reported to me. Another test-compile
I did just now with current mainline did not produce build warnings either.

/* Conflicts */
At the time of creating this PR no merge conflicts were reported from
