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: http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git&a=commitdiff&h=81e695c026eeda9a97e412fa4f458e5cab2f6c85
I could take care of this for parisc. Just looked into the code and it seems it could cleanup the code nicely as well.
But I don't want to step on Kyle's toe, since I assume he prepares the asm-parisc/ move in the parisc-2.6 git tree during the next days.
Kyle: any comments? Should I prepare some patches? Or do you want to take care of the compat_sys_ptrace yourself?
