    ms/fuse: handle only fatal signals while waiting request answer
    Patchset description:
    fuse: fix signals handling while processing request
    This patch fixes wrong SIGBUS result in page fault handler for fuse file, when
    process received a signal.

          new helper: wait_event_killable_exclusive()
          fuse: handle only fatal signals while waiting request answer
    This patch description:
    This patch is backport of ms commit 7d3a07fcb8a0d5c06718de14fb91fdf1ef20a0e2
    ("fuse: don't mess with blocking signals").
    just use wait_event_killable{,_exclusive}().

    Although this commit loks more like cleanup, it's not.
    It fixes the issue with signals, which can lead to abort of page read in fuse,
    called from page fault, immediatly leading to SIGBUS sent to the caller.
    The issue is in block_sigs() implementation: it doesn't drop pending signal
    flag, which interrupts wait_event_interruptible() in request_wait_answer(),
    while it's supposed to be interrupted by SIGKILL only.
    IOW, any signal, arrived to the process, which does page fault handling on fuse
    file, _before_ request_wait_answer() is called, will lead to request
    interruption, producing SIGBUS error in page fault handler (filemap_fault).
    Once again:
    block_sigs() doesn't (!) clear TIG_SIGPENDING flag. All it does is blocking
    future signals to arrive.  Moreover, __set_task_blocked() call
    recalc_sigpending(), which check whether any of the signals to block is present
    in process pending mask, and if so - set (!) TIF_SIGPENDING on the task.
    IOW, any pending signal remains pending after call to blocks_sigs().
    And that's is the root of the issue.
