The indenting here looks messed up.

Also, there looks to be a pretty substantial amount of copy-and-paste
code in those little if()s. It's only going to get worse as we add more
architectures. If there's ever a little buglet in that bit of code, or
we need to tweak it it some way, it'll be a bitch to fix.
For instance, if you have a little arch-independent helper like this:

static inline int is_self_ptracing(unsigned long syscall_reg)
{
if (!(current->ptrace & PT_SELF))
return 0;
if (syscall_reg == __NR_rt_sigreturn)
return 0;
if (syscall_reg == __NR_ptrace)
return 0;
return 1;
}
You can call it like this:

if (is_self_ptracing(regs->gprs[2]))
...
if (is_self_ptracing(regs->orig_ax))
...
if (is_self_ptracing(regs->orig_rax))
Something similar can probably be done for the siginfo construction.

You should basically try and think of ways to abstract this stuff every
single time you touch arch code.

Why don't you also mention why you really want this feature. That's
missing from the description.
