Subject: [PATCH RESEND] signal: unconditionally leave the frozen state in ptrace_stop()

Alex Xu reported a regression in strace, caused by the introduction of
the cgroup v2 freezer. The regression can be reproduced by stracing
the following simple program:

  #include <unistd.h>

  int main() {
      write(1, "a", 1);
      return 0;
  }

An attempt to run strace ./a.out leads to the infinite loop:
  [ pre-main omitted ]
  write(1, "a", 1)                        = ? ERESTARTSYS (To be restarted if SA_RESTART is set)
  write(1, "a", 1)                        = ? ERESTARTSYS (To be restarted if SA_RESTART is set)
  write(1, "a", 1)                        = ? ERESTARTSYS (To be restarted if SA_RESTART is set)
  write(1, "a", 1)                        = ? ERESTARTSYS (To be restarted if SA_RESTART is set)
  write(1, "a", 1)                        = ? ERESTARTSYS (To be restarted if SA_RESTART is set)
  write(1, "a", 1)                        = ? ERESTARTSYS (To be restarted if SA_RESTART is set)
  [ repeats forever ]

The problem occurs because the traced task leaves ptrace_stop()
(and the signal handling loop) with the frozen bit set. So let's
call cgroup_leave_frozen(true) unconditionally after sleeping
in ptrace_stop().

With this patch applied, strace works as expected:
  [ pre-main omitted ]
  write(1, "a", 1)                        = 1
  exit_group(0)                           = ?
  +++ exited with 0 +++
