Subject[PATCH 2/3] ptrace: mv send-SIGSTOP from do_fork() to ptrace_init_task()
If the new child is traced, do_fork() adds the pending SIGSTOP.
It assumes that either it is traced because of auto-attach or the
tracer attached later, in both cases sigaddset/set_thread_flag is
correct even if SIGSTOP is already pending.

Now that we have PTRACE_SEIZE this is no longer right in the latter
case. If the tracer does PTRACE_SEIZE after copy_process() makes the
child visible the queued SIGSTOP is wrong.

We could check PT_SEIZED bit and change ptrace_attach() to set both
PT_PTRACED and PT_SEIZED bits simultaneously but see the next patch,
we need to know whether this child was auto-attached or not anyway.

So this patch simply moves this code to ptrace_init_task(), this
way we can never race with ptrace_attach().
