This patch is equivalent to strace-4.4-1-s390-1-may2002 and contains the following strace bug fix:

Description:
Wrong system call number derivation.
Symptom:
Errors like e.g. segmentation faults.
Problem:
strace doesn't expect that an SVC instruction gets executed via an EXECUTE instruction. If this happens, strace derives the system call number out of an EXECUTE opcode instead of an SVC opcode. This results in a wrong system call number, which will be used for further computation.
Solution:
Take into account that SVC instructions get executed via EXECUTE.

Everybody should apply this patch.
