kernel/signal.c: protect the traced SIGNAL_UNKILLABLE tasks from SIGKILL
The comment in sig_ignored() says "Tracers may want to know about even ignored signals" but SIGKILL can not be reported to debugger and it is just wrong to return 0 in this case: SIGKILL should only kill the SIGNAL_UNKILLABLE task if it comes from the parent ns. Change sig_ignored() to ignore ->ptrace if sig == SIGKILL and rely on sig_task_ignored(). SISGTOP coming from within the namespace is not really right too but at least debugger can intercept it, and we can't drop it here because this will break "gdb -p 1": ptrace_attach() won't work. Perhaps we will add another ->ptrace check later, we will see.
