Actually, you don't need CAP_SYS_ADMIN for seccomp() at all as long as
you enable the NNP flag, I think?

If by "possible fix" you mean "check whether the seccomp filter is
only attached to a single task": That wouldn't fundamentally change
the situation, it would only add an additional special case.

I don't find it confusing at all. seccomp() and ptrace() are very
different situations: When you use seccomp(), infrastructure is
already in place for ensuring that your filter is only applied to
processes over which you are capable, and propagation is limited by
inheritance from your task down. When you use ptrace(), you need a
pretty different sort of access check that checks whether you're
privileged over ancestors, siblings and so on of the target task.

But thinking about it more, I think that CAP_SYS_ADMIN over the saved
current->mm->user_ns of the task that installed the filter (stored as
a "struct user_namespace *" in the filter) should be acceptable.
