Subject[PATCH 5/5] exit: ptrace: shift "reap dead" code from exit_ptrace() to forget_original_parent()
Now that forget_original_parent() uses ->ptrace_entry for EXIT_DEAD
tasks, we can simply pass "dead_children" list to exit_ptrace() and
remove another release_task() loop. Plus this way we do not need to
drop and reacquire tasklist_lock.

Also shift the list_empty(ptraced) check, if we want this optimization
it makes sense to eliminate the function call altogether.
