Having spoken to someone who understands this stuff better than I
(although I still reserve the right to be talking out my a**e) it
appears this is the case. ptrace.h is allowed to define whatever it
likes because it's not defined by a standard but signal.h is specified
by POSIX and is not allowed to define anything which isn't in the POSIX
reserved namespace or which isn't explicitly mentions, which PSR_* is

So it seems like the bug is on the libc side for including this
particular #include chain?

On the flip side is there any reason for the Linux uapi headers to be
including architectural constants? e.g. the x86 uapi/ptrace.h doesn't
define the RFLAGS bits etc...
