However, the approach I suggested doesn't provide forward compatibility:
if userspace is compiled with kernel headers that don't define
PTRACE_SYSCALL_INFO_SECCOMP, it will break when the kernel
starts to use PTRACE_SYSCALL_INFO_SECCOMP instead of
PTRACE_SYSCALL_INFO_ENTRY for PTRACE_EVENT_SECCOMP support
in PTRACE_GET_SYSCALL_INFO.

The solution is to introduce PTRACE_SYSCALL_INFO_SECCOMP and struct
ptrace_syscall_info.seccomp along with PTRACE_EVENT_SECCOMP support
in PTRACE_GET_SYSCALL_INFO. The initial revision of the seccomp
structure could be made the same as the entry structure, or it can
diverge from the beginning, e.g., by adding ret_data field containing
SECCOMP_RET_DATA return value stored in ptrace_message, this would save
ptracers an extra PTRACE_GETEVENTMSG call currently required to obtain it.
