new pull request

It's probably a good idea for Nimrod to review/merge this one since there's
a tug-of-war over the value of PTRACE_EVENT_SECCOMP. It's 7 in the mainline
kernel, but in Ubuntu 12.04 only it's 8. So I changed it from 8 to 7 last
month, then Nimrod changed it back, so now I'm changing it back to 7 and
making rr support both 7 and 8.

Also merging pull requests probably isn't a good use of Andreas' time :-).

With these patches Firefox runs layout/base and layout/generic mochitests
if I disable wrap-syscalls. I have a branch containing my
rework of wrap-syscalls to fix the "single system call overflows buffer"
problem and other issues. Before I merge that I want to add support for
wrapping blocking system calls by having rr monitor context switch events
--- that's what I'll work on next time I get some time.
