This is for recording my GSoC 2018. You can find my GSoC project web page in Google Summer of Code 2018.

What I’ve done

  • tests for fcntl syscall
  • small fix on quota-related decoder
  • fix decoder of Q_XGETQSTAT on non-native personalities
  • tests for quotactl syscall
  • tests for net-related syscall
  • fix decoding of evdev bitset
  • fix decoder of ioctl EVIOCGBIT
  • tests for evdev ioctl
  • tests for decoder of device mapper (in progress)



  • write tests for other syscalls which are in low test coverage
  • investigate and introduce root-only tests, see strace’s GSoC wiki-> List of project ideas for students -> Enhancing test coverage when running test suite under root
