ptrace: ensure JOBCTL_STOP_SIGMASK is not zero after detach
This is the temporary simple fix for 3.2, we need more changes in this area. 1. do_signal_stop() assumes that the running untraced thread in the stopped thread group is not possible. This was our goal but it is not yet achieved: a stopped-but-resumed tracee can clone the running thread which can initiate another group-stop. Remove WARN_ON_ONCE(!current->ptrace). 2. A new thread always starts with ->jobctl = 0. If it is auto-attached and this group is stopped, __ptrace_unlink() sets JOBCTL_STOP_PENDING but JOBCTL_STOP_SIGMASK part is zero, this triggers WANR_ON(!signr) in do_jobctl_trap() if another debugger attaches. Change __ptrace_unlink() to set the artificial SIGSTOP for report. Alternatively we could change ptrace_init_task() to copy signr from current, but this means we can copy it for no reason and hide the possible similar problems.
