    Hi Andrea,

    Do you have plans to generalize seccomp into somelike like a "syscall
    firewall"? This _would_ be useful to many apps, and provide good security
    benefits - for example, vsftpd does not need most of the previously-buggy
    syscalls such as sysctl(), mremap() and execve(). But it does need more
    than just read(), write() and exit()!

    Cheers
    Chris
