thanks Linus.

I changed strace, so that it works with the new official interface.
I've tared together my current development tree, and put it on under /pub/people/tsbogend/strace-alpha-0.00.tar.gz.
There are still lots of bugs in this version, especially with
execve (strace dumps core:-( ), because it gets a little bit
confused with the syscall number. I'm now trying to fix the
remaining bugs. After this is done, I will start clean up sources
and talk to the strace maintainer (if there is one; it looks
like nobody maintains strace, because you even can't compile it
on Linux/x86) for inclusion of my patches.
