Why do you need to take a reference to the p here? You are under
task_lock so this will not go away and you only need p to get your mm.

You want to release the task_lock

you want task_will_free_mem(p) and what is the point of the PF_KTHREAD
check?

All you need is to make sure mm will not get released under your feet
once task_lock is released so mmgrab is the right thing to do here. The
address space can be torn down in parallel and that is OK and desirable.

I think you really want something like this:

	if (flags)
		return -EINVAL;
	
	pid = pidfd_get_pid(fd, &f_flags);
	if (IS_ERR(pid))
		return PTR_ERR(pid);
	task = get_pid_task(pid, PIDTYPE_PID);
	if (!task) {
		ret = -ESRCH;
		goto put_pid;
	}

	/*
	 * Make sure to chose a thread which still has a reference to mm
	 * during the group exit
	 */
	p = find_lock_task_mm(task);
	if (!p) {
		ret = -ESRCH;
		goto put_task;
	}

	mm = task->mm;
	mmgrab(mm);
	reap = true;
	/* If the work has been done already, just exit with success */
	if (test_bit(MMF_OOM_SKIP, &mm->flags)) {
		reap = false;
	} else if (!task_will_free_mem(p)) {
		reap = false;
		ret = -EINVAL;
	}
	task_unlock(p);

	if (!reap)
		goto dropmm;;

	/* Do the work*/


dropmm:
	mmdrop(mm);
put_task:
	put_task(task);
put_pid:
	put_pid(pid);

	return ret;
