Description Jan Kratochvil 2007-04-06 13:46:49 EDT
Description of problem:
Found a regression against kernel.org in RH kernels utrace based implementation
of ptrace(2).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
(on FC6 system)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. gcc -o stopkills stopkills.c -Wall -ggdb3
2. ./stopkills

Actual results:
./stopkills: PTRACE_DETACH: No such process

Expected results:
(nothing; exit code 0)

Additional info:
ptrace (PTRACE_CONT, child_pid, NULL, (void *) SIGSTOP);
ptrace (PTRACE_DETACH, child_pid, NULL, NULL);
PTRACE_DETACH fails by ESRCH on the utrace kernels.

Comment 2 Roland McGrath 2007-04-06 16:58:48 EDT
The name of the test case and the description of the bug are confusing.
The actual problem is that after PTRACE_CONT,SIGSTOP the child is in job control
stop (TASK_STOPPED), not ptrace stop (TASK_TRACED).  The regression is that
ptrace should work on a child in job control stop as well, whereas currently the
utrace kernel returns ESRCH as it does when the child is not stopped.

This is modified not to depend on timing.
