commit 838361c6cfb1319eadd59daaf9074dcdb92746e6

    signal condition variable at end of stop_tracers
    stop_tracers modifies tp->is_done and thus must signal the condition
    variable tracer_wait_unblock is waiting on to monitor tp->is_done.
    Not doing so might cause the tool to deadlock if stop_tracers is
    called while a tracer thread is in tracer_wait_unblock.
