Please no :).

I don't buy your arguments that 3-syscalls vs. one is better. If I'm
doing this setup with a new container, I have to do
clone(CLONE_FILES), do this seccomp thing, so that my parent can pick
it up again, then do another clone without CLONE_FILES, because in the
general case I don't want to share my fd table with the container,
wait on the middle task for errors, etc. So we're still doing a bunch
of setup, and it feels more awkward than ptrace, with at least as many
syscalls, and it only works for your children.

I don't mind leaving capable(CAP_SYS_ADMIN) for the ptrace() part,
though. So if that's ok, then I think we can agree :)
