Description

Disallow ptrace on greeter and kwin_wayland process on FreeBSD [... for the future]

Summary:
Similar to[[ https://phabricator.kde.org/D1216 | D1216 ]] add procctl call to disable ptrace on FreeBSD.

We cannot do the procfs-lookup to check whether the process is already being run inside gdb -- however, on FreeBSD, we could use the P_TRACED flag of the process to figure this out:

sys/proc.h:#define P_TRACED 0x00800 /* Debugged process being traced. */

And the code would look something similar to

pid_t pid = getpid();
struct procstat *prstat = procstat_open_sysctl();
struct kinfo_proc *procinfo;
unsigned int cnt;
procinfo = procstat_getprocs(prstat, KERN_PROC_PID, pid, &cnt);
long p_flags = procinfo->ki_flag;
int p_traced = p_flags & P_TRACED;
if (p_traced != P_TRACED) {
    mode = PROC_TRACE_CTL_DISABLE;
    procctl(P_PID, getpid(), PROC_TRACE_CTL, &mode);
}
procstat_freeprocs(prstat,procinfo);
procstat_close(prstat);

But as wayland is [far] in the future on FreeBSD, and that check above is a bit lengthy, I think it is enough if we add it once it is needed.
