Sorry for replying late.
Thanks for your patch that removes task_lock(tsk).
I made this patch against the mainline tree, and do_exit() in the mainline tree
doesn't hold task_lock(tsk), so I took task_lock(tsk). But I didn't take notice
that do_exit() in the mmotm tree had been changed, and I made this mistake.

This is my mistake, I will make patch to cleanup it.
