Okay, it's didn't add a syscall, it just changed it. Results are the
same: conservative filters suddenly start breaking due to the different
call. (And now I see why Andy's alias suggestion would help...)

I'm not sure which direction to do with this. It seems like an alias
list is a large hammer for this case, and a "seccomp-bypass when calling
from vDSO" solution seems too fragile?
