Test program (assumes that it can execute itself as ./a.out):

-------------
#include <fcntl.h>
#include <pthread.h>
#include <string.h>
#include <sys/socket.h>
#include <sys/un.h>
#include <sys/epoll.h>
#include <signal.h>
#include <unistd.h>

static int sk;

static void *epoller(void *unused)
{
    struct epoll_event epev;
    int epfd;
    
    epfd = epoll_create(1);

    epev.events = EPOLLOUT;
    epoll_ctl(epfd, EPOLL_CTL_ADD, sk, &epev);
    epoll_wait(epfd, &epev, 1, 5000);

    execl("./a.out", "./a.out", (void *)0);

    return NULL;
}

int main(void)
{
    struct sockaddr_un sun;
    pthread_t tid;
    int tg0, tg1, rc;

    sun.sun_family = AF_UNIX;
    
    tg0 = socket(AF_UNIX, SOCK_DGRAM, 0);
    strncpy(sun.sun_path, "/tmp/tg0", sizeof(sun.sun_path));
    unlink(sun.sun_path);
    bind(tg0, (struct sockaddr *)&sun, sizeof(sun));
    
    tg1 = socket(AF_UNIX, SOCK_DGRAM, 0);
    strncpy(sun.sun_path, "/tmp/tg1", sizeof(sun.sun_path));
    unlink(sun.sun_path);
    bind(tg1, (struct sockaddr *)&sun, sizeof(sun));

    sk = socket(AF_UNIX, SOCK_DGRAM, 0);
    connect(sk, (struct sockaddr *)&sun, sizeof(sun));

    fcntl(sk, F_SETFL, fcntl(sk, F_GETFL) | O_NONBLOCK);
    
    while ((rc = write(sk, "bla", 3)) != -1);

    pthread_create(&tid, NULL, epoller, NULL);

    usleep(5);

    strncpy(sun.sun_path, "/tmp/tg0", sizeof(sun.sun_path));
    connect(sk, (struct sockaddr *)&sun, sizeof(sun));
    close(tg1);
    
    pause();

    return 0;
}
-----------------

Inserting a

struct list_head *p;

p = &u->peer_wait.task_list;
WARN_ON(p->next != p || p->prev != p);

into unix_sock_destructor triggers a warning and after running for a
while, one also gets the list corruption warnings, example

Doing "the signalfd_cleanup" thing should prevent this (didn't test this
so far). I still think the correct solution would be to clean this up in
unix_dgram_disconnected.
