Yes, as i said it in earlier threads, lacking other in-tree use,
utrace is only acceptable for upstream if it materially cleans up
the ptrace code here and now - without any wide #ifdefs like some of
the earlier patches did.

The latest patches from Oleg clearly go in this direction, which is
a very promising development!
