rpctrace cannot handle this following piece of code:

error_t err;
mach_port_t psetpriv;
mach_port_t priv_host;
mach_port_t *psets;
size_t npsets;

get_privileged_ports (&priv_host, NULL);
err = host_processor_sets (mach_host_self (), &psets, &npsets);
if (err)
error (1, err, "host_processor_sets");

err = host_processor_set_priv (priv_host, psets[0], &psetpriv);
if (err)
error (1, err, "host_processor_set_priv");

Since rpctrace cannot see host_processor_sets(), it fails to handle host_processor_set_priv().
How can we handle it? Is there something similar like task_set_special_port() or thread_set_special_port() to set the host port?
