Summary: Better error messages when ptrace() fails on linux
Component: All Bugs

I was debugging a Linux lldb bug (on Linux).
I run linux in a VM using parallels, and for some reason lldb wasn't able to
attach to the inferior. The error message was:
"could not attach".
After a bit of scratching my head, I tried to run under gdb and I got the
"Could not attach to process. If your kid matches the kid of the target
process, check the setting of /proc/sys/kerne/yama/ptrace_scope, or try again
as the root user. For more details, see /etc/sysctl.d/10-ptrace.conf.
ptrace: operation not permitted"
Which is much more informative. We might consider emitting better diagnostics
in this case (and similar ones). This is also a good beginner bug for somebody
who wants to get their feet wet and learn lldb.
