ptrace: fix task_join_group_stop() for the case when current is traced

This testcase

	#include <stdio.h>
	#include <unistd.h>
	#include <signal.h>
	#include <sys/ptrace.h>
	#include <sys/wait.h>
	#include <pthread.h>
	#include <assert.h>

	void *tf(void *arg)
		return NULL;

	int main(void)
		int pid = fork();
		if (!pid) {
			kill(getpid(), SIGSTOP);

			pthread_t th;
			pthread_create(&th, NULL, tf, NULL);

			return 0;

		waitpid(pid, NULL, WSTOPPED);

		waitpid(pid, NULL, 0);

		ptrace(PTRACE_CONT, pid, 0,0);
		waitpid(pid, NULL, 0);

		int status;
		int thread = waitpid(-1, &status, 0);
		assert(thread > 0 && thread != pid);
		assert(status == 0x80137f);

		return 0;

fails and triggers WARN_ON_ONCE(!signr) in do_jobctl_trap().

This is because task_join_group_stop() has 2 problems when current is traced:

	1. We can't rely on the "JOBCTL_STOP_PENDING" check, a stopped tracee
	   can be woken up by debugger and it can clone another thread which
	   should join the group-stop.

	   We need to check group_stop_count || SIGNAL_STOP_STOPPED.

	2. If SIGNAL_STOP_STOPPED is already set, we should not increment
	   sig->group_stop_count and add JOBCTL_STOP_CONSUME. The new thread
	   should stop without another do_notify_parent_cldstop() report.

To clarify, the problem is very old and we should blame
ptrace_init_task().  But now that we have task_join_group_stop() it makes
more sense to fix this helper to avoid the code duplication.
