[PATCH] Passing the right signal when process tracing in a vkernel.

Attached diff fixes a signal 0 panic when tracing a process inside a 
vkernel which does a syscall. How-to-reproduce inside a vkernel:

$ gdb ls
(gdb) break main
(gdb) r
(gdb) si
<repeatedly hammer your enter key, watch the panic>
I'm currently passing SIGTRAP because I think that makes sense, but I'm 
not 100% sure if I need to do more. The problem was found by Simon 
'corecode' Schubert.
