Subject[PATCH 17/23] tracehook: force signal_pending()
Date
This defines a new hook tracehook_force_sigpending() that lets
tracing code decide to force TIF_SIGPENDING on in recalc_sigpending().

This is not used yet, so it compiles away to nothing for now.
It lays the groundwork for new tracing code that can interrupt
a task synthetically without actually sending a signal.
