There are exactly two commits in glibc since 2.25 that changed
3f67d1a7021ed3184830511636a0867faec730fe and

I reviewed and approved both of these commits assuming that they brought
no regressions.  If sys/ptrace.h from glibc 2.25 could be included before
or after linux/ptrace.h, this shouldn't have changed in glibc 2.26.

In other words, I think you've spotted a regression that I missed during
b08a6a0dea63742313ed3d9577c1e2d83436b196 review and that has to be fixed
in glibc before 2.26 is released.
