put_seccomp_filter() is called from free_task() which in turn gets
called via delayed_put_task_struct through call_rcu() so the
notification will happen at some point whereas you'd often want the
notification to happen at reliable point. This is why most of that stuff
happens in release_task() which is called in the exit path when the task
is finally marked as dead. This is similar to how cgroup_release() is
called from release_task() whereas cgroup_free() is called from
free_task() or other stuff.
