epoll: ep_unregister_pollwait() can use the freed pwq->whead
signalfd_cleanup() ensures that ->signalfd_wqh is not used, but this is not enough. eppoll_entry->whead still points to the memory we are going to free, ep_unregister_pollwait()->remove_wait_queue() is obviously unsafe. Change ep_poll_callback(POLLFREE) to set eppoll_entry->whead = NULL, change ep_unregister_pollwait() to check pwq->whead != NULL under rcu_read_lock() before remove_wait_queue(). We add the new helper, ep_remove_wait_queue(), for this. This works because sighand_cachep is SLAB_DESTROY_BY_RCU and because ->signalfd_wqh is initialized in sighand_ctor(), not in copy_sighand. ep_unregister_pollwait()->remove_wait_queue() can play with already freed and potentially reused ->sighand, but this is fine. This memory must have the valid ->signalfd_wqh until rcu_read_unlock().
