    Subject[patch 32/60] wait_task_stopped(): pass correct exit_code to wait_noreap_copyout()

    2.6.23-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let us

    From: Scott James Remnant <>

    patch e6ceb32aa25fc33f21af84cc7a32fe289b3e860c in mainline.

    In wait_task_stopped() exit_code already contains the right value for the
    si_status member of siginfo, and this is simply set in the non WNOWAIT

    If you call waitid() with a stopped or traced process, you'll get the signal
    in siginfo.si_status as expected -- however if you call waitid(WNOWAIT) at the
    same time, you'll get the signal << 8 | 0x7f

    Pass it unchanged to wait_noreap_copyout(); we would only need to shift it
    and add 0x7f if we were returning it in the user status field and that
    isn't used for any function that permits WNOWAIT.
