I am not sure I understand the value of signaled/SECCOMP_NOTIF_FLAG_SIGNALED...
I mean, why it is actually useful?

Sorry if this was already discussed.

And it seems that SECCOMP_NOTIF_FLAG_SIGNALED is the only reason why
seccomp_do_user_notification() doesn't do wait_for_completion_killable() from
the very beginning.

But my main concern is that either way wait_for_completion_killable() allows
to trivially create a process which doesn't react to SIGSTOP, not good...

Note also that this can happen if, say, both the tracer and tracee run in the
same process group and SIGSTOP is sent to their pgid, if the tracer gets the
signal first the tracee won't stop.

Of freezer. try_to_freeze_tasks() can fail if it freezes the tracer before
it does SECCOMP_IOCTL_NOTIF_SEND.

Oleg.
