Currently mips and parisc are the only architectures not yet converted
to the generic compat_sys_ptrace.  The conversion is rather trivial and
only involves splitting the current compat_ptrace handler into a
compat_arch_ptrace with all the meat and the existing compat_sys_ptrace
that does all the boilerplate code, just like the generic sys_ptrace.
To get the generic compat_sys_ptrace you have to add a

        #define __ARCH_WANT_COMPAT_SYS_PTRACE

to ptrace.h for now, but once mips and parisc are converted this will of
course be removed.  Take a look at the powerpc conversion as an example:
