Subject[RFC, PATCH 0/2] utrace/ptrace: simplify/cleanup ptrace attach
Shouldn't be applied without Roland's ack.

I just don't know how to merge the second patch properly. I think it would be
really nice to cleanup ptrace attach before "ptracee data structures cleanup",
but this depends on utrace-core.patch which adds exclude_ptrace().

With the first patch, the second one (and hopefully the further cleanups) does
not depend on utrace.

Or, we can start with something like the patch below. Or, instead we can move
the "already traced" check into exclude_ptrace, this way only this helper will
depend on utrace changes. But personally I'd prefer to remove exclude_ptrace()
for now and add the correct checks later.

Roland, what do you think?

Oleg.
