This doesn't *add* anything new. All the same ptrace stops will happen
at exactly the same moments. No new stops added. We only add a value
into upper half of waitpid status: (status >> 16) used to be 0
on syscall entry. Now it will be PTRACE_EVENT_SYSCALL_ENTRY[1].
That's all.

This is an orthogonal problem.
