Bug#546619: strace for hppa is critically broken

Carlos O'Donell-2
Package: strace
version: 4.5.18-1
Severity: grave
Architecture: hppa
Tags: Patch

Strace is *unusable* on hppa.

This bug supercedes bug #437928, updates the patches listed there, and
fixes the most recent issues.
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=437928

Problems:
* Traced process function descriptors are accessed causing faults.
* More than maximum number of syscall arguments accessed causing upeek failures.
* Missing syscalls.
* Incorrect processing of some IPC syscalls.

Please apply the attached patch to fix all of these issues.

It is critical that strace be fixed, the debian-porters are attempting
to track down buildd instability issues and without a working strace
this makes it difficult.

Cheers,
Carlos.
