do_wait() optimization: do not place sub-threads on task_struct->children list
Thanks to Roland who pointed out de_thread() issues. Currently we add sub-threads to ->real_parent->children list. This buys nothing but slows down do_wait(). With this patch ->children contains only main threads (group leaders). The only complication is that forget_original_parent() should iterate over sub-threads by hand, and de_thread() needs another list_replace() when it changes ->group_leader. Henceforth do_wait_thread() can never see task_detached() && !EXIT_DEAD tasks, we can remove this check (and we can unify do_wait_thread() and ptrace_do_wait()). This change can confuse the optimistic search in mm_update_next_owner(), but this is fixable and minor. Perhaps badness() and oom_kill_process() should be updated, but they should be fixed in any case.
