            Bug ID: 231445
           Summary: [patch] sleepq_catch_signals will still enter sleep
                    after a ptrace attach event
           Product: Base System
           Version: CURRENT

If a ptrace attach SIGSTOP is queued to a process while that process is on a
sleep queue but has not yet entered sleep, the signal will not abort the sleep.

This behavior which contradicts the expected behavior that happens when the
process is interrupted mid sleep - it aborts the sleep and will continue from a
user mode boundary when continued.

In the current condition after the process is restarted, it will immediately
enter the sleep as if no signal was received (this is due to issignal deleting
signals handled by ptracestop and returning 0, where sleepq_catch_signals uses
the return value in the pending signals check prior to entering sleep).

A proposed patch is attached.
I reproduced this issue on a FreeBSD12-CURRENT amd64 machine running on QEMU
with multiple cores.
