ptrace_signal() calls send_signal() though.

But oh, dear. It is sending a signal on behalf of the parent, so what I was
about to send, which does the uid mapping at send_signal() using current_cred()
as the id to send, is not correct.

Which unfortunately means that I'll have to have the caller of send_signal
(when doing SI_USER) either send the signal sender's cred, or do the
mapping. Or special-case ptrace_signal(). This is not as pretty as I'd

sys_rt_tgsigqueueinfo() still seems to go through send_signal().
