Sure, distros ship it; but basically nobody uses it, it doesn't have
to be fast. As long as we don't *break* it, everything's fine. And if
we ignore the existence of X32 in the fastpath, that'll just mean that
syscalls with the X32 marker bit always hit the seccomp slowpath
(because it'll look like the syscall number is out-of-bounds ) - no
problem.
