    Avoid giving two traps for singlestep instead of one, when syscall auditing is
    In fact no singlestep trap is sent on syscall entry, only on syscall exit, as
    can be seen in entry.S:
    # Note that in this mask _TIF_SINGLESTEP is not tested !!! <<<<<<<<<<<<<<
            testb $(_TIF_SYSCALL_TRACE|_TIF_SYSCALL_AUDIT|_TIF_SECCOMP),TI_flags(%ebp)
            jnz syscall_trace_entry
    	call do_syscall_trace
    But auditing a SINGLESTEP'ed process causes do_syscall_trace to be called, so
    the tracer will get one more trap on the syscall entry path, which it
