Exposing seccomp_data in a Landlock context may be a good idea. The main
implication is that Landlock programs may then be architecture specific
(if dealing with data) as seccomp filters are. Another point is that it
remove any direct binding between seccomp filters and Landlock programs.
I will try this (more simple) approach.

I can change the seccomp(2) use in this way: instead of loading a
Landlock program, (atomically) load an array of Landlock programs.

However, exposing seccomp_data to Landlock programs looks like a better
way to deal with it. This does not needs to manage an array of Landlock
