Well SIGSTOP is visible via PTRACE_GETSIGINFO.

I see what is happening now. Since we don't have queued siginfo
we generate some as:
/*
* Ok, it wasn't in the queue. This must be
* a fast-pathed signal or we must have been
* out of queue space. So zero out the info.
*/
clear_siginfo(info);
info->si_signo = sig;
info->si_errno = 0;
info->si_code = SI_USER;
info->si_pid = 0;
info->si_uid = 0;

Which allows last_signfo to be set,
so despite not really having any siginfo PTRACE_GET_SIGINFO
has something to return so does not return -EINVAL.

Reconstructing my context that was part of removing SEND_SIG_FORCED
so this looks like it will take a little more than a revert to fix
this.

This is definitely a change that is visible to user space. The logic in
my patch was definitely wrong with respect to SIGSTOP and
PTRACE_GETSIGINFO. Is there something in userspace that actually cares?
AKA is the idiom that the test seccomp_bpf.c is using something that
non-test code does?

The change below should restore the old behavior. I am just wondering
if this is something we want to do. siginfo is allocated with
GFP_ATOMIC so if your maching is under memory pressure there is a real
chance the allocation can fail. Which would cause whatever is breaking
now to break less deterministically then.

If we need to fix this do we need to make siginfo allocation more
reliable?
