Yes sure. But how can you know that you should take this sub-thread
into account and this is the last thread?

OK... you can probably look at every PROC_EVENT_EXIT which has the
right ->process_tgid and use wait(WNOHANG) every time to detect the
group exit.

OK, thanks, I seem to understand now. Initially I wrongly thought
that your point is literally "tgid should me reapable right after
PROC_EVENT_EXIT with this patch".

Thanks!

Oleg.
