Subject: [PATCH bpf-next] bpf: increment and use correct thread iterator

From: Jonathan Lemon <bsd@...com>

If unable to obtain the file structure for the current task,
proceed to the next task number after the one returned from
task_seq_get_next(), instead of the next task number from the
original iterator.

Use thread_group_leader() instead of comparing tgid vs pid, which
might may be racy.

Only obtain the task reference count at the end of the RCU section
instead of repeatedly obtaining/releasing it when iterathing though
a thread group.

This patch fixes a recurring RCU stall seen from task_file_seq_next().

Fixes: a650da2ee52a ("bpf: Add task and task/file iterator targets")
Fixes: 67b6b863e6ab ("bpf: Avoid iterating duplicated files for task_file iterator")
