seccomp: Implement SECCOMP_RET_KILL_PROCESS action
Right now, SECCOMP_RET_KILL_THREAD (neƩ SECCOMP_RET_KILL) kills the current thread. There have been a few requests for this to kill the entire process (the thread group). This cannot be just changed (discovered when adding coredump support since coredumping kills the entire process) because there are userspace programs depending on the thread-kill behavior. Instead, implement SECCOMP_RET_KILL_PROCESS, which is 0x80000000, and can be processed as "-1" by the kernel, below the existing RET_KILL that is ABI-set to "0". For userspace, SECCOMP_RET_ACTION_FULL is added to expand the mask to the signed bit. Old userspace using the SECCOMP_RET_ACTION mask will see SECCOMP_RET_KILL_PROCESS as 0 still, but this would only be visible when examining the siginfo in a core dump from a RET_KILL_*, where it will think it was thread-killed instead of process-killed. Attempts to introduce this behavior via other ways (filter flags, seccomp struct flags, masked RET_DATA bits) all come with weird side-effects and baggage. This change preserves the central behavioral expectations of the seccomp filter engine without putting too great a burden on changes needed in userspace to use the new action. The new action is discoverable by userspace through either the new actions_avail sysctl or through the SECCOMP_GET_ACTION_AVAIL seccomp operation. If used without checking for availability, old kernels will treat RET_KILL_PROCESS as RET_KILL_THREAD (since the old mask will produce RET_KILL_THREAD).
