I've spent a little more time looking at this, and no, that last
statement is wrong. My current testing shows that seccomp always sees
the "true" syscall, which is what we want (matches all other
However, the other two statements continue to appear true: there is a
register visibility difference. During the restart_syscall syscall,
this routine behaves different on native arm and compat arm:
int get_syscall(pid_t tracee)
struct iovec iov;
struct pt_regs regs;
iov.iov_base = ®s;
iov.iov_len = sizeof(regs);
assert(0 == ptrace(PTRACE_GETREGSET, tracee, NT_PRSTATUS, &iov));
On native ARM, this returns the restarted syscall (in my test case,
nanosleep). On compat ARM, this returns restart_syscall syscall.
Either we should fix native ARM to do what all other architectures do
(show restart_syscall syscall) or we should fix compat ARM to behave
like native ARM.
