That probably makes sense. Note that cred_guard_mutex is also overloaded
for ptrace_attach, so this would add some more serialization of attaches to
threads in the same group. But as long as actual attachment serializes on
tasklist_lock anyway, it doesn't make a material difference. (Even without
that, it would presumably be the same debugger attaching serially to
threads in the same group, so it wouldn't degrade anything in practice.)


Thanks,
Roland
