Yes, the test case hangs here too. But the problem seems to be
elsewhere. Did you look into the strace output? This line is pretty

3258 clone2(child_stack=0, stack_size=0,
child_tidptr=0x200000000004e290) = 1

Obviously, strace cannot attach PID 1, and since it is not designed to
handle this situation, it hangs. I'm going to investigate why the return
value of the clone2 syscall is seen as 1 by the tracer. Might even turn
out to be a bug in strace...
