Oh, that might be easy.  I'd track this in kdump, not in the kernel.  Just
remember if there was ever a tid != 0 for a particular proc and if so, start
using the extended output.  I recall that strace is doing something like this
when tracing procs with fork tracing switched on.  Maybe also not using 6
digits unconditionaly (dunno, just skimmed the patch) but scaling up to the
needed amount could help.
