Noteworthy changes in release 4.21 (2018-02-13)

* Changes in behaviour
  * Warning is now issued when -F option is used.
  * Warning is now issued when a tracee with unsupported personality
    is attached.
  * Unknown syscall numbers are now printed in hexadecimal form.

* Improvements
  * Implemented decoding of netlink descriptor attributes as file descriptors.
  * Implemented decoding of hugetlb page size selection flags.
  * Implemented decoding of BPF_PROG_TEST_RUN, BPF_PROG_GET_NEXT_ID,
    and BPF_OBJ_GET_INFO_BY_FD commands of bpf syscall.
  * Enhanced decoding of get_thread_area, memfd_create, modify_ldt,
    perf_event_open, reboot, s390_guarded_storage, s390_pcio_mmio_read,
    s390_pci_mmio_write, s390_runtime_instr, s390_sthyi, set_thread_area,
    and shmget syscalls.
  * Implemented decoding of KVM_* and DM_LIST_DEVICES ioctl commands.
  * Implemented decoding of riscv_flush_icache syscall.
  * Enhanced decoding of getsockopt and setsockopt syscalls for SOL_NETLINK
  * Enhanced decoding of BPF_MAP_CREATE command of bpf syscall.
  * Print values returned by mq_open syscall and first arguments
    of mq_getsetattr, mq_notify, mq_timedreceive, and mq_timedsend syscalls
    as file descriptors.
  * Added decoding of get_tls syscall on arm.
  * Added -e trace=%pure option for tracing system calls with no arguments that
    never fail.
  * Updated lists of IPV6_*, MAP_*, MEMBARRIER_CMD_*, MSG_*, NT_*, PKEY_*,
    SHM_*, and TCP_* constants.
  * Added manual page for the strace-log-merge command.
  * Updated lists of ioctl commands from Linux 4.15.
  * Implemented biarch support for s390x.
  * Implemented an optional support for symbol demangling in strace -k output
    (activated by --with-libiberty configure option).
  * Information about availability of demangling and reliable personality
    decoding (on architectures with multiple personalities) is now available
    in strace -V output.
  * Added decoding of pkey_alloc, pkey_free, and pkey_mprotect syscalls on
    powerpc and powerpc64.
  * Enhanced manual page.

* Bug fixes
  * Fixed multi-personality support in cross builds.
  * Added mq_getsetattr, mq_notify, mq_open, mq_timedreceive, and mq_timedsend
    syscalls to %desc tracing set.
  * Fixed path tracing support for mmap syscalls with indirect arguments and
    for old select syscall.
  * Fixed decoding of arm-specific (__ARM_NR_*) syscalls.
  * Fixed open mode flags decoding.
  * Fixed corner cases in handling of strace -ff -ttt logs by strace-log-merge.
  * Error counts that exceed one billion are now printed correctly in call
    summary output.
  * Fixed call summary header for x32 personality.
  * Changes of tracee personalities are reported more reliably.
  * Fixed the case when strace attaches to a tracee being inside exec and its
    first syscall stop is syscall-exit-stop instead of syscall-enter-stop,
    which messed up all the syscall state tracking.
  * Fixed printing of higher 32 bits of the return value for x32 personality.

* Portability
  * A C compiler that supports "for" loop initial declarations is now required.
  * Inability to configure multiple personality support on architectures where
    multiple personalities are supported leads to configuration failure during
    build now.  Use --enable-mpers=check to revert to the old behaviour.
  * Build-time requirement for the mpers support has been lowered from gawk 4
    to gawk 3.
  * Removed incomplete and non-functional support for the CRIS architecture.
  * Removed incomplete and unused support for IA-32 mode on the IA-64
