Euh, so I implemented this, and it sucks :). It's ugly, and generally
feels bad.

What if instead we just get rid of versioning all together, and
instead introduce a u32 flags? We could have one flag right now
(SECCOMP_NOTIF_FLAG_SIGNALED), and use introduce others as we add more
information to the response. Then we can add
SECCOMP_NOTIF_FLAG_EXTRA_FOO, and add another SECCOMP_IOCTL_GET_FOO to
grab the info?

FWIW, it's not really clear to me that we'll ever add anything to the
response since hopefully we'll land PUT_FD, so maybe this is all moot
anyway.
