forget_original_parent: split out the un-ptrace part
By discussion with Roland. - Rename ptrace_exit() to exit_ptrace(), and change it to do all the necessary work with ->ptraced list by its own. - Move this code from exit.c to ptrace.c - Update the comment in ptrace_detach() to explain the rechecking of the child->ptrace.
