Because before this series /sbin/init always ignored SIGSTOP. Now,
ptracer does PTRACE_ATTACH and exits without clearing the pending
SIGSTOP. init dequeues this signal and becomes TASK_STOPPED.

Consider:

	$ sleep 1000 &
	[1] 875

	$ grep State: /proc/`pidof sleep`/status
	State:  S (sleeping)

	$ perl -e 'syscall 101, 16, 0+shift, 0,0' `pidof sleep`    # just PTRACE_ATTACH + exit

	[1]+  Stopped                 sleep 1000

	$ grep State: /proc/`pidof sleep`/status
	State:  T (stopped)

This is the "normal" behaviour, afaics the same happens with init now.

Oleg.
