sched, autogroup: Fix potential access to freed memory
Oleg pointed out that the /proc interface kref_get() useage may race with the final put during autogroup_move_group(). A signal->autogroup assignment may be in flight when the /proc interface dereference, leaving them taking a reference to an already dead group.
