SubjectRe: [PATCH v2 2/2] seccomp: Check that seccomp_notif is zeroed out by the user

The upper part is correct and useful.

The interesting part here is accidently leaking kernel addresses to
userspace. For this to be an issue we'd need to do
struct seccomp_notif unotif = {};
copy_to_user(<user-buffer>, &unotif, sizeof(unotif))
_and_ seccomp_notif would need to contain unintentional padding. Even if
the latter were true we still use memset() anwyay and will likely never
remove it. So the code here sure doesn't rely or depends on correct
padding at all.

That link isn't useful and also incorrectly claims that there is
non-intentional padding in the struct which there isn't.

Just drop that whole paragraph. The expectation is that all of our ABIs
are correctly padded anyway and this really just confuses more than it
helps.
Please resend, otherwise:

It wouldn't hurt to place a small comment here so the reader can easily
spot we've ensured that this struct can be extended. But up to you...

/* Verify that we're not given garbage to keep struct extensible. */
