The easiest way would probably be to open-code the semaphore-ish part,
and let the semaphore and poll share the waitqueue. The current code
kind of mirrors the semaphore's waitqueue in the wqh - open-coding the
entire semaphore would IMO be cleaner than that. And it's not like
semaphore semantics are even a good fit for this code anyway.

Let's see... if we didn't have the existing UAPI to worry about, I'd
do it as follows (*completely* untested). That way, the ioctl would
block exactly until either there actually is a request to deliver or
there are no more users of the filter. The problem is that if we just
apply this patch, existing users of SECCOMP_IOCTL_NOTIF_RECV that use
an event loop and don't set O_NONBLOCK will be screwed. So we'd
probably also have to add some stupid counter in place of the
semaphore's counter that we can use to preserve the old behavior of
returning -ENOENT once for each cancelled request. :(

I guess this is a nice point in favor of Michael's usual complaint
that if there are no man pages for a feature by the time the feature
lands upstream, there's a higher chance that the UAPI will suck
forever...
