I can't remember why that signal code exists, or if I ever knew; it was
there when the code was added seven years ago. I agree that if there's
something we cannot interrupt, we should use uninterruptible, but I don't
see any cases of that either. I think we should just remove it all
(untested):

Subject: [PATCH] dlm: remove signal blocking

The signal blocking was incorrect and unnecessary
so just remove it.
