I pushed these changes to branch ldv/master, please have a look whether
it's OK for master.

BTW, we probably have to accept some guideline about maintaining ChangeLog
file in git.  Whether to reflect changes there along with changes themself
using single commit, or make this file autogenerated using
gitlog-to-changelog tool, etc.
I suppose that experience of other free software projects migrated from
CVS to GIT several years earlier than strace (e.g. coreutils) may be a
good point to start with.
