I'm open to better suggestions, but there's a race where if getppid
is not called before the second SECCOMP_IOCTL_NOTIF_ADDFD is called,
you will just get an ENOENT, since the notification ID is not found.

The other approach is to "poll" the child, and wait for it to enter
the second syscall. Calling receive beforehand doesn't work because
it moves the state of the notification in the kernel to received,
and then the kernel doesn't error with EINPROGRESS.
