You're talking about the case where you already have shot yourself in
the foot by blocking basically all other sensible ways of getting the fd
out.

Also, this was meant to show that parts of your initial justification
for implementing the ptrace() way of getting an fd doesn't really stand.
And it doesn't really. Even with ptrace() you can get into situations
where you're not able to get an fd. (see prior threads)

Again, (prior threads) ptrace() or no ptrace() is something I do not
particularly care about as long as we have the
non-capable(CAP_SYS_ADMIN) seccomp() way of getting an fd out.
