For the record, rr uses PTRACE_O_TRACEEXIT.

When a thread exits we need to examine its address space to find its
robust futex list and record the changes that will be performed by the
kernel as it cleans up that list. So, any failures to deliver
PTRACE_EVENT_EXIT are potentially problematic for us because we won't
get a chance to examine the address space before it disappears.
