Yep, exactly.

We can't exactly because of the real root restriction on bpf(). So we
just open the bpf fds when we're real root and keep them until the
very end of the restore when we finally install the seccomp filters.
Not ideal, of course, but I assume we can change how this works once
bpf() deemed safe for non-root.
