I agree it's more symmetrical when get_seccomp_filter() is used here
directly instead of copy_seccomp(). That should put Kees at ease.

This should be at least rate limited, but could be dropped altogether,
as it's mostly useful for debugging filters. There is no kernel message
when a process is killed because it exceeds a ulimit either. The death
by SIGSYS is hopefully clear enough for users, and filter writers can
return different errno values when debugging where it goes wrong.

Must be aligned, that's worth mentioning.

'@buf'.

Yeah, just get rid of this and use get_seccomp_filter directly, and make
it return void instead of a pointer.

Wouldn't it make more sense to always kill with SIGSYS, also for mode 1?
I suppose it's too late for that now.

That reads awkwardly, do you mean the mode can't be changed once it's set?

All in all I'm quite happy with how the code is now, at least this bit.
I'm still unsure about the networking patch and the 32-bit BPF on 64-bit
archs mismatch.

As for the unlimited filter count, I'm not sure how to fix that.
The problem is that filters are inherited and shared. Limiting the
list length (tree depth) helps a bit, then the total memory usage
is limited by max number of processes. It may make sense to limit
the total instruction count instead of the number of filters.

Greetings,

Indan
