SubjectRe: [PATCH 7/8] job control: Notify the real parent of job control events regardless of ptrace

Yes, great.

Again, I am not sure we do not need same_thread_group(), but this
is minor.

Hmm... in fact I can't convince myself we really need to look at
child->group_leader, will recheck... Anyway, this is minor too.

OK.

But what about "else" branch? If gstop_done == T but debugger has gone
between spin_unlock(siglock) and read_lock(tasklist), we should do
something.

ptrace_untrace() restores GROUP_STOP_PENDING in this case, so this task
will stop again. But notification is lost.

Just in case, it is not that I blame this patch. Just I think we need
a bit more changes here. Unless I missed something.

Nice,

Well, yes... This is ugly but compatible and documented, so I agree.

Oleg.
