Hmm. I missed this.

Yes, but utrace is simple. ptrace_report_clone() does

	ctx->eventmsg = child->pid;

we should fix this line and that is all, afaics. Every tracer has a
separate "struct ptrace_context *ctx".

Without utrace only one tracer is possible.

So, I think we should either change do_fork() to get the right tracee_pid_nr,
or add get/put into do_fork() and change tracehooks as Roland suggested.
