Subject: [PATCH 3/3 v4 bpf-next] bpf: optimize task iteration

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

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

Jump to the correct branch when it is known that the task is NULL.
