I see two options, either to apply strace-4.7-i386_regs.diff proposed by
Pavel (the patch is definitely correct and could be applied without
additional testing), or build a snapshot from strace.git HEAD (commit 
07f022903e077a04fefd0c6132a706b7a50a7067 at this moment).

The first variant is straightforward, anybody who remembers how to use cvs
can do it.

The second variant is not as risky as it may sound because strace.git HEAD
is quite stable now.  I suppose I can manage it despite of my rusty cvs
skills, I was going to test strace-4.8 (planned to be released in May) on
Owl-current before the release anyway.
