Oleg,

ptrace/utrace performs better with the ptrace-tests [1] testsuite (1 failure
vs. 3 with vanilla ptrace [1]). The gdb testsuite also has no
regressions. In fact, the results on the gdb testsuite are identical.

[2] detach-stopped and stopped-attach-transparency are the additional
failures. syscall-reset fails in both cases.
