Hello, strace community!

* Accomplishment:

	* Submit the final evaluation [1]


	* Clean up the code
	* Support other architecture
	* Enhance the test
	* Ouput friendly message when we should not enable seccomp filter

* Conclusion

	seccomp filter make strace run faster. But in the following case,
	we should not enable seccomp filter:

	* strace -p: only when use execve to execute a program can we initialize seccomp
	* strace -einject: seccomp stop can not inject signal
	* strace TRACER(like strace): if enable seccomp filter, we will trace
	the tracee’s child process, so the tracee’s child process call
	ptrace(PTRACE_TRACEME) fail
