This fixes most of the issues with rr, but it still changes the ptrace
behavior for the double-SIGSEGV case (yes, we have a test for that
too). The second SIGSEGV isn't reported to the ptracer and the program
just skips straight to the PTRACE_EVENT_EXIT. This is visible in gdb
as well (only the first SIGSEGV is caught).
