[PATCH RESEND 0/5] Handle seccomp notification preemption

This patchset addresses a race condition we've dealt with recently with
seccomp. Specifically programs interrupting syscalls while they're in
progress. This was exacerbated by Golang's recent adoption of "async
preemption", in which they try to interrupt any syscall that's been
running for more than 10ms during GC. During certain syscalls, it's
non-trivial to write them in a reetrant manner in userspace (mount).

This has a couple semantic changes, and relaxes a check on seccomp_data, and
changes the semantics with ordering of how addfd and notification replies
in the supervisor are handled.

I'm resending after rebasing and testing on v5.12. It turns out this change
also fixed a bug Rodrigo found that could occur with addfd around certain
race conditions[2].

It also follows up on the original proposal from Tycho[3] to allow
for adding an FD and returning that value atomically.

Changes since v1[1]:
 * Fix some documentation
 * Add Rata's patches to allow for direct return from addfd
