Yeah, it should work. The testcase is running in a loop for more than
hour already and everything seems to be ok. Now the question is whether
the fix is really correct which is something for Oleg.
Also I think there is at least one more issue lurking there. Without or
without the patch I can make tracer get stuck in do_wait waiting for
task which doesn't seem to be alive anymore. I will report it separately
after this one gets resolved to not pull more confusion in.
Anyway, thanks for your time Mike!
