I think there might be a problem with the current design.  If I add a
seccomp filter that uses RET_LANDLOCK and some landlock filters, what
happens if a second seccomp filter *also* uses RET_LANDLOCK?  I think
they'll interfere with each other.  It might end up being necessary to
require only one landlock seccomp layer at a time or to find a way to
stick all the filters in a layer together with the LSM callbacks or
maybe to just drop RET_LANDLOCK and let the callbacks look at the
syscall args.

BTW, what happens if an LSM hook is called outside a syscall context,
e.g. from a page fault?

Something occurs to me that isn't strictly relevant to landlock but
may be relevant to unprivileged cgroups: can you cause trouble by
setting up a nastily-configured cgroup and running a setuid program in
it?
