Of course I'd prefer if you make this change on top of Denys's patch ;)

Besides, if you agree with PTRACE_EVENT_SECCOMP/PTRACE_O_SECCOMP you
need only one trivial change in ptrace.h.

Strange... I didn't check, but every patch in
http://marc.info/?l=linux-mm-commits has this note:

	The -mm tree is included into linux-next and is updated
	there every 3-4 working days

Great. In this case this patch becomes really trivial. Just 2 defines
in ptrace.h and the unconditional ptrace_event() under SECCOMP_RET_TRACE.

But probably you should check fatal_signal_pending(current) after
ptrace_event() returns, ptrace_event() returns void.

Oleg.
