Subject: [PATCH] kernel: release ptraced tasks before zap_pid_ns_processes

Currently, exit_ptrace() adds all ptraced tasks in a dead list, than
zap_pid_ns_processes() waits all tasks in a current pid ns, and only
then tasks from the dead list are released.

zap_pid_ns_processes() can stuck on waiting tasks from the dead list. In
this case, we will have one unkillable process with one or more dead
children.
