* Improvements
  * Added `-e trace=%creds` option for tracing syscalls related to process
  * Enhanced decoding of `arch_prctl`, `keyctl`, `io_uring_register`, `io_uring_setup`,
    and `perf_event_open` syscalls.
  * Enhanced decoding of `BPF_PROG_LOAD` `bpf` syscall command.
  * Updated decoding of `clone3` syscall to match Linux 5.5.
  * Implemented decoding of `TCA_ACT_FLAGS` and `TCA_STATS_PKT64` netlink
  * Updated lists of `AUDIT_*`, `BPF_*`, `CLONE_*`, `KEY_*`, `KVM_*`, `PPC_PTRACE_*`,

  * Updated lists of ioctl commands from Linux 5.5.
  * Enhanced manual page and `strace --help` output.

* Bug fixes

  * Fixed stack trace caching when `--seccomp-bpf` option is specified.
  * Fixed potentially unaligned access in decoder of `SO_TIMESTAMP*_NEW`
