Subject[patch 29/58] ptrace: ptrace_attach: fix the usage of ->cred_exec_mutex
2.6.29-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------

From: Oleg Nesterov <oleg@redhat.com>

commit cad81bc2529ab8c62b6fdc83a1c0c7f4a87209eb upstream.

ptrace_attach() needs task->cred_exec_mutex, not current->cred_exec_mutex.
