Subject: [PATCH 5/5] ptrace: x86: change syscall_trace_leave() to rely on
	tracehook when stepping

Suggested by Roland.

Unlike powepc, x86 always calls tracehook_report_syscall_exit(step)
with step = 0, and sends the trap by hand.

This results in unnecessary SIGTRAP when PTRACE_SINGLESTEP follows
the syscall-exit stop.

Change syscall_trace_leave() to pass the correct "step" argument to
tracehook and remove the send_sigtrap() logic.
