Subject[10/71] ptrace: Prepare to fix racy accesses on task breakpoints
2.6.38-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------

From: Frederic Weisbecker <fweisbec@gmail.com>

commit bf26c018490c2fce7fe9b629083b96ce0e6ad019 upstream.

When a task is traced and is in a stopped state, the tracer
may execute a ptrace request to examine the tracee state and
get its task struct. Right after, the tracee can be killed
and thus its breakpoints released.
This can happen concurrently when the tracer is in the middle
of reading or modifying these breakpoints, leading to dereferencing
a freed pointer.

Hence, to prepare the fix, create a generic breakpoint reference
holding API. When a reference on the breakpoints of a task is
held, the breakpoints won't be released until the last reference
is dropped. After that, no more ptrace request on the task's
breakpoints can be serviced for the tracer.
