ptrace: fix PTRACE_LISTEN race corrupting task->state

In PT_SEIZED + LISTEN mode STOP/CONT signals cause a wakeup against
__TASK_TRACED.  If this races with the ptrace_unfreeze_traced at the end
of a PTRACE_LISTEN, this can wake the task /after/ the check against
__TASK_TRACED, but before the reset of state to TASK_TRACED.  This
causes it to instead clobber TASK_WAKING, allowing a subsequent wakeup
against TRACED while the task is still on the rq wake_list, corrupting
it.

Oleg said:
 "The kernel can crash or this can lead to other hard-to-debug problems.
  In short, "task->state = TASK_TRACED" in ptrace_unfreeze_traced()
  assumes that nobody else can wake it up, but PTRACE_LISTEN breaks the
  contract. Obviusly it is very wrong to manipulate task->state if this
  task is already running, or WAKING, or it sleeps again"
