Well, you need to be careful regarding the last part of your option
above, because a number of network daemons become non-dumpable by
executing setuid() at boot, and certainly don't want to suffer a
performance loss as a side effect of wanting to become "normally"
secure. I'd suggest to use the prctl only so that it doesn't
randomly hit innocent applications that would only have as a last
resort to turn off reasonable security features to avoid this impact.
