Subject[RFC] [PATCH] selective signal ptracing
Selective Ptraced Signal Support - A proposed enhancement

This is a proposal for a ptrace enhancement that adds two new ptrace(2)
commands that let a debugger view and modify the set of signals that
are being ptraced.

By default all signals are ptraced as before. However, a debugger
may now modify the set of per-task ptraced signals, where only the
signals in this ptrace signal mask will be ptraced.

Signals that are not being ptraced will be handled normally by the ptraced
process, and no notification will be passed on to the debugger process.
Only ptraced signals that are received by the ptraced task will cause
that task to stop and notify the debugger.

This new ptrace selective signal support provides a method for improving
debug session performance and for reducing the amount of ptrace-related
interference of a ptraced process, particularly when an an application
is making use of one or more signals that are not currently of interest
to the debug session, but are occuring frequently.

The command interfaces are:

long int ptrace(enum __ptrace_request request,
pid_t target_pid, void *addr, void *data)

request:
When PTRACE_SETSIGTRACE is specified, then the set of signals
in the sigset_t structure (pointed to by the data
parameter) will become the set of signals that are ptraced for
the target process.

When PTRACE_GETSIGTRACE is specified, then the current set
of ptraced signals will be returned at the sigset_t structure
location (pointed to by the data parameter).

pid: pid of the target/ptraced task

addr: not used

data: pointer to a sigset_t structure


Tasks that have the PTRACE_O_TRACEFORK, PTRACE_O_TRACECLONE
or PTRACE_O_TRACECLONE option set at the time of a fork, vfork or clone
call that are currently being ptraced will yield child tasks
that inherited their parent task's ptrace signal mask.

When single-stepping and a user's signal handler is executed, the ptraced
task only single-steps/stops in the signal handler if that signal is in
the ptraced signal mask. Otherwise, the ptraced task will execute the
entire signal handler and then stop at the next instruction in the normal
(non-signal related) execution flow.

The proposed patch below implements ptrace selective signal ptracing
for the i386 and x86_64 architecutres. Other architectures will ptrace
all signals, in the same way as before.
