[PATCH 0/5] ptrace & wait cleanup

From: Roland McGrath
Date: Thu Jul 17 2008 - 03:12:00 EST

I posted an earlier version of this patch series before, and I believe
this has fixed the quibbles there were with it before. These changes
pave the way for cleaning up ptrace a lot more in the future.

This series is a prerequisite for the following "tracehook" series,
but only because of patch conflicts. They can be reviewed separately.

This series of patches is also available in GIT at the URL below, and in a
mail folder of patch messages (use git-am or formail -s patch -p1) at:

The following changes since commit 33af79d12e0fa25545d49e86afc67ea8ad5f2f40:
