SubjectRe: Compat 32-bit syscall entry from 64-bit task!?

Another idea, avoiding new PTRACE_EVENTs per arch, would be to make
the abi32/abi64/compat/whatnot discriminator retrievable with PTRACE_GETEVENTMSG
instead. So you'd get PTRACE_EVENT_SYSCALL_ENTRY|EXIT, or the regular old
0x80|SIGTRAP, you'd still fetch the syscall number from $orig_ax (or whatever means
for other archs), as usual, then have extra syscall info in PTRACE_GETEVENTMSG.
I don't know if it'd be simple to make it possible to do PTRACE_GETEVENTMSG
on a 0x80|SIGTRAP trap, but I imagine it so.

-> wait
<- 0x80|SIGTRAP (or PTRACE_EVENT_SYSCALL_ENTRY)
-> read regs, find out syscall number
-> PTRACE_GETEVENTMSG, figure out which entry mode was used.
