Yeah, I would prefer that the seccomp code isn't doing list management
to identify the landlock hooks to trigger, etc. I think that's better
done on the LSM side. And since multiple seccomp filters could trigger
landlock, it may be best to just leave the low 16 bits unused
entirely. Then all state management is handled by the landlock eBPF
maps, not a value coming from seccomp that can get stomped on by new
filters, etc.
