Yes, thanks. "UPDATED" patches look fine. Please feel free to add my
reviewed-by to the whole series.

I'd only ask you to remove ->group_leader from real_parent_is_ptracer()
(btw, note that wait_consider_task() can use this helper too) although
this is minor.

Cough. Resent? If you ask me, I think you should just send them to
Linus while the merge window is opened.

I am trying to get the account on, but until then I hope
you can flush the pending ptrace-review branches.

In case I misunderstood you... I think that the whole series is good
and the patches should not be updated. Just for example, I'd like to
rename real_parent_is_ptracer (and remove ->group_leader), but we can
make another patch for that.

And yes, I bet we missed something and we will need the subsequent
fixes anyway ;)
