This is still confusing because the defines are kinda associated to the
prctl(). But ALLOW/BLOCK are the values which for the user space
selector which allows to runtime filter the dispatching without the
overhead of prctl().

So they want to be visualy seperated and not part of the PR_
namespace. Something like the below.

#define PR_SET_SYSCALL_USER_DISPATCH 59
# define PR_SYS_DISPATCH_OFF 0
# define PR_SYS_DISPATCH_ON 1

/* Control values for the syscall dispatch runtime selector (filter) */
# define SYSCALL_DISPATCH_FILTER_ALLOW 0
# define SYSCALL_DISPATCH_FILTER_BLOCK 1

Hmm?

Thanks,
