There might be a situation, when task is expected to be killed, but it's
execution already passed this check in __rpc_execute() and the task is not yet
sleeping. In this case it will fall into sleep. I.e. it's a race.
This patch add check for per-net "kill_tasks" is enabled before going to
What's good here, is that this check is done with queue->lock being held.
And tasks killing is also performed with the same lock being held.
IOW, this lock is a synchronization point, which guarantees us that task will
either die by itself or killed.
