x86, bts: add fork and exit handling
Impact: introduce new ptrace facility Add arch_ptrace_untrace() function that is called when the tracer detaches (either voluntarily or when the tracing task dies); ptrace_disable() is only called on a voluntary detach. Add ptrace_fork() and arch_ptrace_fork(). They are called when a traced task is forked. Clear DS and BTS related fields on fork. Release DS resources and reclaim memory in ptrace_untrace(). This releases resources already when the tracing task dies. We used to do that when the traced task dies.
