(What doesn't pass for you? I tried to go find kernelci.org test output,
but it doesn't appear to actually run selftests yet?)

Anyway, good that the test output doesn't change, bad that seccomp has
missed a corner of this architecture interface. (i.e. the entire
TRACE_syscall fixture is dedicated to exercising the changing/skipping
interface, but I see now that it doesn't at all exercise any area of
ENOSYS results.)

Well, if you look at change_syscall() in seccomp_bpf.c (once you stop
screaming) you'll likely share my desire to have more things that are
common across architectures. ;) So, to that end, yes, please, let's
define what we'd like to see, and then build out the (likely wildly
different per-architecture expectations). If I read this thread
correctly, we need to test:

	syscall(-1), direct,  returns ENOSYS
	syscall(-10), direct, returns ENOSYS
	syscall(-1), SECCOMP_RET_TRACE+PTRACE_CONT, returns ENOSYS
	syscall(-10), SECCOMP_RET_TRACE+PTRACE_CONT, returns ENOSYS
	syscall(-1), ptrace+PTRACE_SYSCALL, returns ENOSYS
	syscall(-10), ptrace+PTRACE_SYSCALL, returns ENOSYS

do we need to double-check that registers before/after are otherwise
unchanged too? (I *think* just looking at syscall return should be
sufficient to catch the visible results.)
