Subject[PATCH 1/8] job control: Don't set group_stop exit_code if re-entering job control stop
Date
While ptraced, a task may be resumed while the containing process is
still job control stopped. If the task receives another stop signal
in this state, it will still initiate group stop, which generates
group_exit_code, which the real parent would be able to see once the
ptracer detaches.

In this scenario, the real parent may see two consecutive CLD_STOPPED
events from two stop signals without intervening SIGCONT, which
normally is impossible.

Test case follows.

#include <stdio.h>
#include <unistd.h>
#include <sys/ptrace.h>
#include <sys/wait.h>

int main(void)
{
pid_t tracee;
siginfo_t si;

tracee = fork();
if (!tracee)
while (1)
pause();

kill(tracee, SIGSTOP);
waitid(P_PID, tracee, &si, WSTOPPED);

if (!fork()) {
ptrace(PTRACE_ATTACH, tracee, NULL, NULL);
waitid(P_PID, tracee, &si, WSTOPPED);
ptrace(PTRACE_CONT, tracee, NULL, (void *)(long)si.si_status);
waitid(P_PID, tracee, &si, WSTOPPED);
ptrace(PTRACE_CONT, tracee, NULL, (void *)(long)si.si_status);
waitid(P_PID, tracee, &si, WSTOPPED);
ptrace(PTRACE_DETACH, tracee, NULL, NULL);
return 0;
}

while (1) {
si.si_pid = 0;
waitid(P_PID, tracee, &si, WSTOPPED | WNOHANG);
if (si.si_pid)
printf("st=%02d c=%02d\n", si.si_status, si.si_code);
}
return 0;
}

Before the patch, the latter waitid() in polling mode reports the
second stopped event generated by the implied SIGSTOP of
PTRACE_ATTACH.

st=19 c=05
^C

After the patch, the second event is not reported.
