I didn't read the whole patch, but this sets PT_SELF without PT_PTRACED
(and without ptrace_attach).

We have some "->ptrace != 0" checks which can misunderstand this. Just
for example, suppose that the task does sys_ptrace(PTRACE_SELF_ON) and
then its parent dies. I guess in that case forget_original_parent()
will hit BUG_ON(p->ptrace), no?

Oleg.
