Not sure I understand you... I do not like "compat" too, but this patch uses
is_compat/etc and I agree with any naming.

As I said, I won't argue, but why can't it come as a separate change?

More info in ->ptrace_message looks usable even without PTRACE_GET_SYSCALL_INFO,
while ptrace_syscall_info layout/API may need more discussion.

I too thought about PTRACE_EVENT_SECCOMP (or I misunderstoo you?), looks like
another reason to make a separate patch.

To me PT_IN_SYSCALL_STOP makes no real sense, but I won't argue.

At least I'd ask to not abuse task->ptrace. ptrace_report_syscall() can clear
->ptrace_message on exit if we really want PTRACE_GET_SYSCALL_INFO to fail after
that.
