task->files can be NULL, we can race with exit_files().

You can probably rely on rcu instead of ->file_lock, but this is minor.

Well, probably this is fine... but may be you can add a comment.
The task can change its credentials right after ptrace_may_access()
succeeds. This _looks_ wrong, perhaps it makes sense to add the
"we do not care" note.
