That's a fair point. I think I arrived at this design because it ended
up making filter addition faster ("don't bother processing this one,
it's already 'kill'"), but it's likely not worse the memory usage
trade-off.

I haven't found a data structure I'm happy with for this. It seemed like
NR_syscalls * sizeof(u32) was rather a lot (i.e. to store the BPF_RET
value). However, let me discuss that more in the "why in in thread?"
below...

Hrm, I had convinced myself it was a max() of compat. But I see no
evidence of that now. Which means that I can add these to the per-arch
seccomp defines with something like:

# define SECCOMP_NR_NATIVE NR_syscalls
# define SECCOMP_NR_COMPAT X32_NR_syscalls
...

I explicitly didn't want to add code that was run per-filter; I wanted
O(1), not O(n) even if the n work was a small constant. There is
obviously a memory/perf tradeoff here. I wonder if the middle ground
would be to put a bitmap and "constant action" results in the filter....
oh duh. The "top" filter is already going to be composed with its
ancestors. That's all that needs to be checked. Then the tri-state can
be:

bitmap accept[NR_syscalls]: accept or check "known" bitmap
bitmap filter[NR_syscalls]: run filter or return known action
u32 known_action[NR_syscalls];

(times syscall numbering "architecture" counts)

Though perhaps it would be just as fast as:

bitmap run_filter[NR_syscalls]: run filter or return known_action
u32 known_action[NR_syscalls];

where accept isn't treated special...

Thanks! I was rushing to get this posted so YiFei Zhu wouldn't spend
time fighting with arch and Kconfig stuff. :) I'll clean this (and the
other random cruft) up.
