Yes, I understand what happens.

Basically, we have TASK_RUNNING, TASK_STOPPED and TASK_TRACED
states, and after entering TASK_TRACED state we lose information
in which state we were before entering it. We need to remember
old state and restore it in order for this example to work.

Or we can avoid entering TASK_TRACED on ptrace(PTRACE_GETSIGINFO) et al.
Can we remain in TASK_STOPPED?
