ahh. yes. we're perfectly in agreement here.
I'm suggesting that the next RFC shouldn't include unpriv
and seccomp at all. Once bpf+lsm+cgroup is merged, we can
argue about unpriv with cgroups and even unpriv as a whole,
since it's not a given. Seccomp integration is also questionable.
I'd rather not have seccomp as a gate keeper for this lsm.
lsm and seccomp are orthogonal hook points. Syscalls and lsm hooks
don't have one to one relationship, so mixing them up is only
asking for trouble further down the road.
If we really need to carry some information from seccomp to lsm+bpf,
it's easier to add eBPF support to seccomp and let bpf side deal
with passing whatever information.
