I think this would be needed by any ptracer that handled multiple
threads. It needs to figure out which pid stopped. I think it's worth
fixing, yes.

I think memory pressure that would block a 128 byte GFP_ATOMIC
allocation would mean the system was about to seriously fall over.
Given the user-facing behavior change and that an existing test was
already checking for this means we need to fix it.

I don't think so -- we'd already get a WARN() if allocation failed.

This fixes it for me!

Reported-by: Tycho Andersen <tycho@tycho.ws>
Tested-by: Kees Cook <keescook@chromium.org>
Fixes: f149b3155744 ("signal: Never allocate siginfo for SIGKILL or SIGSTOP")

Thanks!
