The kernel considers this sloppy behavior on the debugger's part. If
you inject a different signal, we expect you should PTRACE_SETSIGINFO
to something appropriate, or else that you really didn't care about
the bits being accurate. If the resumption signal does not match the
siginfo_t.si_signo, then the kernel resets the siginfo as if the
debugger had just used kill with the new signal (i.e. si_pid, si_uid
point to the ptracer).
