What I suggested on a different thread was to add the following new
file descriptor flags, to join FD_CLOEXEC, which would be maniuplated
using the F_GETFD and F_SETFD fcntl commands:

FD_NOPROCFS disallow being able to open the inode via /proc/<pid>/fd

FD_NOPASSFD disallow being able to pass the fd via a unix domain socket

FD_LOCKFLAGS if this bit is set, disallow any further changes of FD_CLOEXEC,

Regardless of what else we might need to meet the use case for the
proposed File Sealing API, I think this is a useful feature that could
be used in many other contexts besides just the proposed
memfd_create() use case.
