SubjectRe: [PATCH 6/7] uprobes: Xol should send SIGTRAP if X86_EFLAGS_TF was set

Agree.

Are you pointing to the info field not being filled? or are there other
problems?

send_sigtrap() is arch specific and defined for only few archs.
we would have to force. But these are not related to the patch.

Should we add a comment here saying ptrace or some debugger wants to
trace this instruction and we singlestepped and hence we want to inform
them now and otherwise they would only know one instruction later?
