Noteworthy changes in release 4.8 (2013-06-03) ============================================== * Changes in behavior * In case of normal strace termination, when the trace output is redirected to a pipe, strace now closes it and waits for the pipe process termination before exit. * Improvements * Implemented tracing using PTRACE_SEIZE API (when available). * Implemented more reliable PTRACE_GETREGSET-based process personality detection on x86-64 and x32 (when available). * Added -e trace=memory option for tracing memory mapping related syscalls. * Documented -b option. * Allowed exit status messages to be suppressed by giving -q option twice. * Added AArch64 architecture support (addresses Debian bug #693074 and Fedora bug #969858). * Added support for OpenRISC 1000, Meta, and Xtensa architectures. * Added tilegx personality support for Tile. * Enhanced support of NOMMU architectures. * Enhanced decoding of getdents, mmap, perf_event_open, ptrace, and quotactl syscalls. * Added new syscall entries to match Linux 3.9. * Regenerated the list of common ioctl names from Linux 3.9. * Updated the list of errno constants. * Updated lists of AF_*, MADV_*, MAP_*, MSG_*, MS_*, PF_*, PR_*, PTRACE_O_*, and TCP_* constants. * Implemented decoding of UBI ioctls. * Removed redundant "*32" ioctl names. * Bug fixes * Fixed ERESTARTNOINTR leaking to userspace on ancient kernels (addresses Fedora bug #659382). * Fixed kernel release string parsing (addresses Debian bug #702309). * Fixed decoding of *xattr syscalls (addresses Fedora bug #885233). * Fixed handling of files with 64-bit inode numbers by 32-bit strace (addresses Fedora bug #912790). * Fixed tracing forks on SPARC. * Fixed decoding of fadvise64, fallocate, ftruncate64, io_submit, pread, preadv, pwrite, pwritev, readahead, sigaltstack, sync_file_range, sysctl, and truncate64 syscalls. * Fixed categories of multiple syscalls on most of supported architectures. * Fixed decoding of non-native 32-bit personality recv[m]msg syscalls. * Fixed decoding of multiple 32-bit personality syscalls on x32. * Fixed decoding of long long syscall arguments on ARM, MIPS/o32, PowerPC, S390x, and Tile architectures. * Fixed semtimedop decoding on S390x. * Fixed sram_alloc decoding on Blackfin. * Fixed build when process_vm_readv is a stab. * Fixed build with older versions of libaio.h.
