[PATCH] fix up lockdep trace in fs/exec.c

This fixes the locking error noticed by lockdep:

  [ INFO: possible recursive locking detected ]
  init/1 is trying to acquire lock:
   (&sighand->siglock){....}, at: [<c047a78a>] flush_old_exec+0x3ae/0x859

  but task is already holding lock:
   (&sighand->siglock){....}, at: [<c047a77a>] flush_old_exec+0x39e/0x859

  other info that might help us debug this:
  2 locks held by init/1:
   #0:  (tasklist_lock){..--}, at: [<c047a76a>] flush_old_exec+0x38e/0x859
   #1:  (&sighand->siglock){....}, at: [<c047a77a>] flush_old_exec+0x39e/0x859
