Subject[PATCH v3 1/3] ptrace: Provide ___ptrace_may_access() that can be applied on arbitrary tasks
From: Jiri Kosina <jkosina@suse.cz>

Current ptrace_may_access() implementation assumes that the 'source' task is
always the caller (current).

Expose ___ptrace_may_access() that can be used to apply the check on arbitrary
tasks.

Sorry for the resend, my pine is buggered and broke threading.
