Somehow I no longer understand why do you need to take all locks. Isn't
the first filter's notify_lock enough? IOW,

		for (cur = current->seccomp.filter; cur; cur = cur->prev) {
			if (cur->notif)
				return ERR_PTR(-EBUSY);
			first = cur;
		}

		if (first)
			mutex_lock(&first->notify_lock);

		... initialize filter->notif ...

	out:
		if (first)
			mutex_unlock(&first->notify_lock);

		return ret;

Oleg.
