This is up to you. Just in case, feel free to add my acked-by or
reviewed-by to any patch I didn't comment explicitly. Or may be

This is the question ;)

I simply do not know what should we do. I think this should be
routed via maintainers.

Or I can push this into the poor ptrace branch... but I am
thinking with horror about the possible conflicts in arch/ code...

What do you think?

Damn. And I can't relax. This is very minor, but I still think
it would be nice to have a common helper which plays sa_mask /
SA_NODEFER to set ->blocked. But in this case, you probably need
to resend the whole series ;)

I mean something like the patch below. OK, nevermind. Probably
this factorization doesn't buy too much, but it will complicate
the merging.
