[PATCH] Fix reparenting to the same thread group. (take 2)
This patch fixes the case when we reparent to a different thread in the same thread group. This modifies the code so that we do not send signals and do not change the signal to send to SIGCHLD unless we have change the thread group of our parents. It also suppresses sending pdeath_sig in this cas as well since the result of geppid doesn't change. Thanks to Oleg for spotting my bug of only fixing this for non-ptraced tasks.
