Ok, this is a simple race in the selftests, that I overlooked and which
is more likely to hit when there's a lot of processes running on the
system. Basically the child process hasn't SIGSTOPed itself yet but the
parent is already calling waitid() on a O_NONBLOCK pidfd. Since it
doesn't find a WSTOPPED process it returns -EAGAIN correctly.

The fix for this is to move the line where we're removing the O_NONBLOCK
property from the fd before the waitid() WSTOPPED call so we hang until
the child becomes stopped.

So I believe the fix is:

diff --git a/tools/testing/selftests/pidfd/pidfd_wait.c b/tools/testing/selftests/pidfd/pidfd_wait.c
