Well, in my opinion, we can skip whole internal_fork call safely
here if PTRACE_SETOPTIONS is in charge. 

Currently, I think TCB_FOLLOWFORK is used to distinguish the
new forked child and original parent at exit point of fork
syscall. While using PTRACE_SETOPTIONS, new child will be
handled when we revice PTRACE_EVENT_* status and I think no
more work will be needed in internal_fork.

I'm sorry if i don't understand correctly.
