Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 235521
utrace: ptrace operations should work on child in job control stop
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:01 EST
Description of problem:
Found a regression against kernel.org in RH kernels utrace based implementation
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
(on FC6 system)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. gcc -o stopkills stopkills.c -Wall -ggdb3
./stopkills: PTRACE_DETACH: No such process
(nothing; exit code 0)
ptrace (PTRACE_CONT, child_pid, NULL, (void *) SIGSTOP);
ptrace (PTRACE_DETACH, child_pid, NULL, NULL);
PTRACE_DETACH fails by ESRCH on the utrace kernels.

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.

cleaned up version of the test case
This is modified not to depend on timing.
This was fixed a while back.
