cpu-timers: Avoid iterating over all threads in fastpath_timer_check()
Spread p->sighand->siglock locking scope to make sure that fastpath_timer_check() never iterates over all threads. Without locking there is small possibility that signal->cputimer will stop running while we write values to signal->cputime_expires. Calling thread_group_cputime() from fastpath_timer_check() is not only bad because it is slow, also it is racy with __exit_signal() which can lead to invalid signal->{s,u}time values.
