Makes sense to me too. Once I'd dropped the other bits, it seemed
silly to keep copy_seccomp.

I'll pull Kees's patch into the series this next go-round.

True - thanks!

Oops - fixed.

It'll be updated.

It would but I don't want to go and change existing ABI.

Yup - I will fix that. It doesn't even make sense :)

Thanks!

Yeah - that is really the most challenging set of compromises, but I
think they are the right ones.

I'll take a stab at tree path size for starters and hopefully we can
encourage consumers of the API to check for errors on return.

Thanks for the continued review and feedback!
