Yeah, I think I may have to change my mind. Looking into __secure_computing(),
I found the code below:

This implies that we should modify syscallno *before* __secure_computing() returns.

I assumed, in my next version, we could skip a system call by overwriting syscallno
with x8 in syscall_trace_enter() after __secure_computing() returns 0, and it actually
But we'd better implement PTRACE_SET_SYSCALL to comply with what __secure_computing()
