Yes, I would like to have it outside ptrace.c (I'd forgotten about that).
fs/proc/base.c is where most of the users really are, but CONFIG_PROC_FS=n
makes putting it there problematical.

The name probably should stay the same unless/until we rename the LSM hooks
to match. TBH, two separate hooks would make more sense to me than the
PTRACE_MODE_* argument. For the hook replacing PTRACE_MODE_READ, the name
may_inspect_task is apropos (not that I am attached to any given name).
