Argh, sorry, I was not clear.

First of all, only SIGSTOP is never delivered to user-space, other
sig_kernel_stop() signals can have a handler and in this case, say,
SIGTTIN doesn't stop but acts like the normal signal. This means you
can't put it into shared_pending.

But even SIGSTOP should be routed properly. If the process is ptraced,
the tracee reports SIGSTOP to the debugger first. This means that
tkill(SIGSTOP) should be delivered to the right target.

Ah, good.
