Hi Peter,

Thanks for the review!

I'm not sure this change gains us anything. For now,
__set_tsk_syscall_intercept cannot be called with !type, so both
versions behave the same, but my version is safe with that scenario.
This won't be called frequent enough for the extra calls to
set_tsk_thread_flag matter. Am I missing something?

Thanks,
