And having started to try coding __sys_setsockopt()
and then found the compat code I suspect that would
be a whole lot more sane if the buffer was in kernel
and it knew that at least (say) 64 bytes were allocated.
The whole compat_alloc_user_space() 'crap' could probably go.
Actually it looks like an application can avoid whatever
checks BPF_CGROUP_RUN_PROG_SETSOCKOPT() is trying to do
by using the 32bit compat ioctls.
