For a coredump, is there any way to know whether a given thread was
inside a traced syscall when the coredump was generated? If so, x7 in
the dump may already unreliable and we only need to make best efforts to
get it "right".

Since triggering of the coredump and death of other threads all require
dequeueing of some signal, I think all threads must always outside the
syscall-enter...syscall-exit path before any of the coredump runs anyway,
in which case the above should never matter... Though somone else ought
to eyeball the coredump code before we agree on that.

ptrace_message doesn't seem absolutely the wrong thing to check, but
we'd need to be sure that it can't be stale (say, left over from some
previous trap).


Out of interest, where did this arm64 ptrace feature come from? Was it
just pasted from 32-bit and thinly adapted? It looks like an
arch-specific attempt to do what PTRACE_O_TRACESYSGOOD does, in which
case it may have been obsolete even before it was upstreamed. I wonder
whether anyone is actually relying on it at all...

Doesn't mean we can definitely fix it safely, but it's annoying.
