This is the first stop (of two) in removing the kill_pgrp_info.

All the users of this function are in kernel/signal.c, but all
they need is to call __kill_pgrp_info() with the tasklist_lock
read-locked.

Fortunately, one of its users is the kill_something_info(),
which already needs this lock in one of its branches, so clean
these branches up and call the __kill_pgrp_info() directly.

Based on Oleg's view of how this function should look.

This patch causes my Fedora Core 3 x86_64 machine to fail.  When
rc.sys_init runs /sbin/start_udev a segmentation fault in start_udev is
reported and no device nodes are created.  This is the only one of my test
machines which behaves this way.

Config: http://userweb.kernel.org/~akpm/config-x.txt
Running udev-039-8.FC3
