signal: don't remove SIGNAL_UNKILLABLE for traced tasks.
When forcing a signal, SIGNAL_UNKILLABLE is removed to prevent recursive
faults, but this is undesirable when tracing. For example, debugging an
init process (whether global or namespace), hitting a breakpoint and
SIGTRAP will force SIGTRAP and then remove SIGNAL_UNKILLABLE.
Everything continues fine, but then once debugging has finished, the
init process is left killable which is unlikely what the user expects,
resulting in either an accidentally killed init or an init that stops
