    No. After PTRACE_ATTACH, next reported waitpid result will be either
    a ptrace-stop of signal-delivery-stop variety,
    or death (WIFEXITED/WIFSIGNALED). Syscall exit notification
    is not possible (modulo kernel bugs). For one, syscall entry/exit
    notifications must be explicitly requested by PTRACE_SYSCALL, which
    wasn't yet done!
