SubjectRe: [RFC PATCH] ptrace: add PTRACE_GET_SYSCALL_INFO request

Yes, this was discussed many times...

So perhaps it makes sense to encode compat/is_enter in ->ptrace_message,
debugger can use PTRACE_GETEVENTMSG to get this info.

I am not sure about this change... I won't really argue, but imo this
needs a separate patch.

Why? If debugger uses PTRACE_O_TRACESYSGOOD it can know if the tracee reported
syscall entry/exit or not. PTRACE_GET_SYSCALL_INFO is pointless if not, but
nothing bad can happen.
