At least for uClinux, ptrace() is hardwired to the same values as in
linux-low.c.  So probably the comment is right and the defined should
be moved into uClinux's uc0-patch.  But I don't see why the dependency
on uclibc define.

Hmmm, what's the correct way to find out whether the cpu has mmu without
uclibc?  How does uclibc find out?
