This happens because do_notify_parent is called from the last thread to exit in a process after that thread has been reaped. The bigger issue is that do_notify_parent can be called from any process that manages to wait on a thread of a multi-threaded process from wait_task_zombie. So any logic based upon current for do_notify_parent is just nonsense, as current can be pretty much anything. So change do_notify_parent to call __send_signal directly. Inspecting the code it appears this problem has existed since the pid namespace support started handling this case in 2.6.30. This fix only backports to 7a0cf094944e ("signal: Correct namespace fixups of si_pid and si_uid") where the problem logic was moved out of __send_signal and into send_signal.
