This doesn't solve the problem universally because of the (Go) preemption
problem. Unless we can guarantee that the supervisor can always handle the
request in fewer than 10ms, or if it implements resumption behaviour. I know
that resumption behaviour is a requirement no matter what, but the easier we can
make it to implement resumption, the better chance we are giving users to get
this right.

I think that the easiest solution is to add to the SECCOMP_IOCTL_NOTIF_RECV
ioctl. Either we have a flag like "block all blockable signals" or pass a
sigset_t directly of which signals to allow (and return an einval if they
try to block non-blockable signals).
