The test is almost certainly failing due to the environmental
requirements (i.e. namespaces, user ids, etc). There are some corner
cases in there that we've had to fix in the past. If the other tests
are passing, then I would expect all the seccomp internals are fine --
it's just the case being weird. It's just a matter of figuring out
what state the test environment is in so we can cover that corner case

Sure, I get that point -- but I don't want to block seccomp landing
for riscv for that. I suggested to David offlist that the test could
just be marked with a FIXME XFAIL on riscv and once someone's in a
better position to reproduce it we can fix it. (I think the test bug
is almost certainly not riscv specific, but just some missing
requirement that we aren't handling correctly.)

How does that sound?
