SubjectRe: [PATCH 1/1] ptrace: make sure do_wait() won't hang after PTRACE_ATTACH
Hello,

I think the root problem is not how ptrace detaches but how ptrace
attaches and stops tracee. If we have a clean way to seize the
tracee, how we detach doesn't really matter. For example, a new
ptrace call which stops the tracee and puts it in a ptrace command
ready state without messing with the signal and group stop stuff.

Thanks.
