strace "all" mask is not all




Apologies if I am doing something wrong, but it appears that the "all" mnemonic
for strace doesnt actually perform as advertised. At a minimum, it appears it
is missing "malloc":

   $ strace -m all true | wc -l
   223

   $ strace -m all,malloc true | wc -l
   306

I could understand if this might be intentional, maybe "malloc" adds a lot of
noise. but if that is the case i feel that "all" should be renamed to "default"
or similar, with an explanation of what "default" actually is. then perhaps a
true "all" could be added as well.

cheers
