Is this needed/desired by anyone now, or are you just using it to "demo"
NO_NEW_PRIVS? I don't see it as very useful on its own, since in any
"container"-type chroot you really want /proc and /dev, and your patch
doesn't help with that.

System daemons that do chroot for a modicum of security already start
privileged, so this doesn't help them either.
