ptrace: revert "ptrace_detach: the wrong wakeup breaks the ERESTARTxxx logic"
Commit 95a3540da9c81a5987be810e1d9a83640a366bd5 ("ptrace_detach: the wrong wakeup breaks the ERESTARTxxx logic") removed the "extra" wake_up_process() from ptrace_detach(), but as Jan pointed out this breaks the compatibility. I believe the changelog is right and this wake_up() is wrong in many ways, but GDB assumes that ptrace(PTRACE_DETACH, child, 0, 0) always wakes up the tracee. Despite the fact this breaks SIGNAL_STOP_STOPPED/group_stop_count logic, and despite the fact this wake_up_process() can break another assumption: PTRACE_DETACH with SIGSTOP should leave the tracee in TASK_STOPPED case. Because the untraced child can dequeue SIGSTOP and call do_signal_stop() before ptrace_detach() calls wake_up_process(). Revert this change for now. We need some fixes even if we we want to keep the current behaviour, but these fixes are not for 2.6.30.
