parent[AVR32] Remove redundant try_to_freeze() call from do_signal() (diff)
ptrace: Call arch_ptrace_attach() when request=PTRACE_TRACEME
arch_ptrace_attach() is a hook that allows the architecture to do book-keeping after a ptrace attach. This patch adds a call to this hook when handling a PTRACE_TRACEME request as well. Currently only one architecture, m32r, implements this hook. When called, it initializes a number of debug trap slots in the ptraced task's thread struct, and it looks to me like this is the right thing to do after a PTRACE_TRACEME request as well, not only after PTRACE_ATTACH. Please correct me if I'm wrong. I want to use this hook on AVR32 to turn the debugging hardware on when a process is actually being debugged and keep it off otherwise. To be able to do this, I need to intercept PTRACE_TRACEME and PTRACE_ATTACH, as well as PTRACE_DETACH and thread exit. The latter two can be handled by existing hooks.
