Optional widening would likely be useless in this context: an in-process
debugger wants to just work (TM). Requiring a special build of ld-linux
(with widened probes) is the opposite of that ;-(
One could hope that upstream glibc would adopt wide probes by default,
but I would guess that chances of that actually happening are nil.
