Subject: [RFC][PATCH v2 0/5] exec: Fixing ptrace'd mulit-threaded hang

Oleg your comment about kill being able to send signal was an important
dimension I had missed thank you.

This patchset just denies the case of SIGHAND between different
multi-threaded processes as I don't think anyone cares.  I can
fix that if anyone cares but I am not certain we actally do.

I have reworked the ptrace notification code so that we always
send notifications if we can but don't wait if it is a coredump
or an exec.  Which simpilifies the code nicely.

A few more tweaks are needed before a final version but I think
things are compelling.
