I would expect this to be not default-y, especially if
CHECKPOINT_RESTORE does a "select" on it.

This is a really powerful syscall, but it is bounded by ptrace access
controls, and uses pointer address obfuscation, so it may be okay to
expose this. As it is, at least Ubuntu already has
CONFIG_CHECKPOINT_RESTORE, so really, there's probably not much
difference on exposure.

So, if you drop the "default y", I'm fine with this.
