(Syscall #158 actually is implemented in the kernel I'm using. I
simply don't know how to tell kdump it is.)

I've been unable to build a linux program exhibiting the same
behaviour myself, but I'm by far no linux expert.
Looks like either clone(2) or getpid(2) is seriously broken, isn't
it? However, digging through the sources I can't find anything
Same thing works correctly on NetBSD/32 in emul/linux.
Another point is I'm noting lots of "unknown errno x" with x being
