Subject: Question about seccomp / bpf

Hi Alexei and Daniel

I have a question about seccomp.

It seems that after this patch, seccomp no longer needs a helper
(seccomp_bpf_load())

https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/commit/?id=bd4cf0ed331a275e9bf5a49e6d0fd55dffc551b8

Are we detecting that a particular JIT code needs to call at least one
function from the kernel at all ?

If the filter contains self-contained code (no call, just inline
code), then we could use any room in whole vmalloc space,
not only from the modules (which is something like 2GB total on x86_64)

Thanks.
