The case I was thinking of was:
- PTRACE_POKEUSR v0 = __NR_some_disallowed_syscall
- PTRACE_SET_SYSCALL __NR_some_allowed_syscall

syscall_get_nr() will return __NR_some_allowed_syscall, so seccomp will
allow, but when syscall_trace_enter() returns to syscall_trace_entry in
arch/mips/kernel/scall32-o32.S, it will reload the syscall number from
v0 (i.e. __NR_some_disallowed_syscall).

Sure, i'll look into that,

Thanks for reviewing,
