Thanks for the pointer.

For the ARM part, looks like Nicolas's patch requires to implement two
wrappers for each arch:

void seccomp_jit_compile(struct seccomp_filter *fp);
void seccomp_jit_free(struct seccomp_filter *fp);

The implementation of these wrappers is almost identical to:

void bpf_jit_compile(struct sk_filter *fp);
void bpf_jit_free(struct sk_filter *fp);

While this patch uses a unified interface for both packet & seccomp filters.

bpf_func_t bpf_jit_compile(struct sock_filter *filter, unsigned int flen);
void bpf_jit_free(bpf_func_t bpf_func);

Shouldn't be hard to merge though.
