May I beg to don't rely on PTRACE_SYSCALL for anything new?
You can't PTRACE_SINGLESTEP and PTRACE_SYSCALL simultaneously. Think of
gdb single-stepping all the way for some reason (software watchpoints, for ex.),
while at the same time wanting to catch syscalls.

As Roland suggested, replacing PTRACE_SYSCALL with PTRACE_O_TRACE_SYSCALL_{ENTRY,EXIT}
and PTRACE_EVENT_SYSCALL_{ENTRY,EXIT} would be superior, syscall tracing wise.
