It is indeed very far from a trivial task. I'd rather recommend to port
gcc's lsan support, it will be most probably much easier to port.

Also it'd need a fair amount of code to reimplement the basic posixish
needs of valgrind in terms of the Hurd RPCs.

Mach doesn't use int 0x80 but an lcall. See for instance
