I'd like the content/ordering of this and the emulator patch to be reorganized a bit.
I'd like to see the infrastructure of the cache added first (along with
the "always allow" test logic in this patch), with the emulator missing:
i.e. the patch is a logical no-op: no behavior changes because nothing
ever changes the cache bits, but all the operational logic, structure
changes, etc, is in place. Then the next patch would be replacing the
no-op with the emulator.

bikeshedding: "cache check" doesn't tell me anything about what it's
actually checking for. How about calling this seccomp_is_constant_allow() or
something that reflects both the "bool" return ("is") and what that bool
means ("should always be allowed").

Please also mark as "inline".

inline too.

Otherwise, yup, looks good.
