OK, please find the patch below. changes: add the comment as you suggested.

Yes it does (and just in case, this patch is applied to your
linux-2.6-utrace.git).

Yes, it did.


Questions: should I send the change in signal.c to Andrew right now?
It can be applied separetely, it doesn't break utrace_report_jctl().

Should I send utrace part to Andrew too? This is not strictly needed.

[PATCH] simplify do_signal_stop() && utrace_report_jctl() interaction

do_signal_stop() can call utrace_report_jctl() before decrementing
->group_stop_count and setting TASK_STOPPED/SIGNAL_STOP_STOPPED.
This allows to greatly simplify utrace_report_jctl() and avoid playing
with group-stop bookkeeping twice.
