I don't immediately see why you're forbidding unsettling it at all.
If you need it to be sticky, then use seccomp or Capsicum to make it
sticky.

Also, the way implementation is dangerously racy -- if anyone pokes at
adjacent bitfields without the lock, they can get corrupted. Try
basing on Kees' seccomp tree or security-next and using the new atomic
flags field.
