[PATCH 4/4] MIPS/ptrace: Add PTRACE_SET_SYSCALL operation




Add a PTRACE_SET_SYSCALL ptrace operation to allow the system call to be
cancelled independently to the value of the v0 system call number
register.

This is needed for SECCOMP_RET_TRACE when the tracer wants to cancel the
system call, since it has to set both the system call number to -1 and
the chosen return value, both of which reside in the same register (v0).
The tracer should set the return value first, followed by
PTRACE_SET_SYSCALL to set the system call number to -1.

That is in contrast to the normal ptrace syscall hook which triggers the
tracer on both entry and exit, allowing the system call to be cancelled
during the entry hook (setting system call number register to -1, or
optionally using PTRACE_SET_SYSCALL), separately to setting the return
value during the exit hook.

Positive values (to change the syscall that should be executed instead
of cancelling it entirely) are explicitly disallowed at the moment. The
same thing can be done safely already by writing the v0 system call
number register and the argument registers, and allowing
thread_info::syscall to be changed to a different value independently of
the v0 register would potentially allow seccomp or the syscall trace
events to be fooled into thinking a different system call was being
executed.
