Subject[PATCH 24/26] signal: In ptrace_stop improve identical signal detection
When two signals are generated make it the thread level signal that is
possibly surpessed. The reasoning is that the group level signal
always needs to be generated to report a group stop when that happens
and it is possibly doing double duty as both the group level and the
thread level signal. So if the thread level signal is identical to
the group level signal it does not need to be sent (or even attempted
to be sent).
