As Tycho mentioned, this is why we have a the tid of the calling task
but we also have a cookie per request.
The cookie is useful so that you can do
- receive request <chocolate> cookie
- open(/proc/<pid>{/mem})
- verify <chocolate> cookie still exists
- <chocolate> cookie still exists -> file descriptor refers to correct
task
- <chocolate> cookie gone -> task has been recycled

Let me quote what I wrote to the Mozilla folks today. :)

"(One thing that always strikes me is that if my pidfd patches would've
been ready back when we did the seccomp notifier we could've added a
pidfd argument to the seccomp notifier kernel struct and if a flag is
set given back a pidfd alongside the notifier fd. This way none of this
revalidting the id stuff would've been necessary and you could also
safely translate from a pidfd into a /proc/<pid> directory to e.g. open
/proc/<pid>/mem. Anyway, that's not out of scope. One could still
write a patch for that to add a pidfd argument under a new flag to the
kernel struct. Should be rather trivial.)"

So yeah, it crossed my mind. ;)

I really would like to have this placed under a flag though...
I very much dislike the idea of receiving any kind of fd
- _especially a pidfd_ - implicitly.
So ideally this would be a flag to the receive ioctl(). Kees just got my
SECCOMP_USER_NOTIF_FLAG_CONTINUE patchset merged for v5.5 which adds the

#define SECCOMP_USER_NOTIF_FLAG_CONTINUE (1UL << 0)

flag which when set in the send case (i.e. supervisor -> kernel) will
cause the syscall to be executed.

When we add a new flag to get a pidfd it might make sense to rename the
CONTINUE flag in master before v5.5 is out to

#define SECCOMP_USER_NOTIF_SEND_FLAG_CONTINUE (1UL << 0)

to indicate that it's only valid for the SEND ioctl().

Then we add

#define SECCOMP_USER_NOTIF_RECV_FLAG_PIDFD (1UL << 0)

for v5.6. This way send and receive flags are named differently for
clarity. (I don't care about the name being long. Other people might
though _shrug_.)
