It turns out, FC15's kernel 2.6.40 has the wrong utrace.patch

See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=728379

in short: PTRACE_SYEMU (used by uml) is broken.

Yes, and then I sent the fixes for above, but they were not included.

Dave, I am sorry. Looks like I managed to confuse you. I wrongly
assumed you will simply pull the "utrace" branch, and thus I did
not re-send the full series.

I am (re)sending it now. Please let me now if you need the incremental
diff against 2.6.40-*.fc15. Or anything else...

(just in case, I verified that utrace-patch in rawhide is fine,
 it matches my utrace-3.1 branch).
