[natty, natty/ti-omap4 CVE 5/5] deal with races in /proc/*/{syscall, stack, personality}

From: Al Viro <viro at zeniv.linux.org.uk>

All of those are rw-r--r-- and all are broken for suid - if you open
a file before the target does suid-root exec, you'll be still able
to access it.  For personality it's not a big deal, but for syscall
and stack it's a real problem.

Fix: check that task is tracable for you at the time of read().
