[PATCH v2 1/4] Documentation: seccomp: Fix user notification documentation
From: Sargun Dhillon
Date: Mon May 17 2021 - 15:39:48 EST
The documentation had some previously incorrect information about how
userspace notifications (and responses) were handled due to a change
from a previously proposed patchset.

It is worth noting that ``struct seccomp_data`` contains the values of register
arguments to the syscall, but does not contain pointers to memory. The task's
