Sorry, I somehow just noticed that this was a duplicate and the one I
replied to was the off-list one. Anyway, no, I don't think that'll
work. The LSM code right now can't do anything besides refuse an
access, and that's a very specific design constraint of it. In
particular, it can't mutate any task state or anything.

What we want in this series is basically the equivalent of
SECCOMP_RET_TRACE, without having to involve ptrace (for a variety of
reasons, mostly that applications want to use ptrace for their own
things). So seccomp seems like the most natural fit.
