    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.
