Right.

Because it was wrapped by __secure_computing(). *shrug* The common
method in the kernel is to use int and 0=ok.

I'd like to avoid changing the return value of __secure_computing() to
just avoid having to touch all the callers. And I'd prefer not to
change __seccomp_filter() to a bool, since I'd like the return values
to be consistent through the call chain.

I find the existing code more readable than a single-line return, just
because it's very explicit. I don't want to have to think any harder
when reading seccomp. ;)
