[PATCH RESEND 2/5] seccomp: Add wait_killable semantic to seccomp user notifier

The user notifier feature allows for filtering of seccomp notifications in
userspace. While the user notifier is handling the syscall, the notifying
process can be preempted, thus ending the notification. This has become a
growing problem, as Golang has adopted signal based async preemption[1]. In
this, it will preempt every 10ms, thus leaving the supervisor less than
10ms to respond to a given notification. If the syscall require I/O (mount,
connect) on behalf of the process, it can easily take 10ms.

This allows the supervisor to set a flag that moves the process into a
state where it is only killable by terminating signals as opposed to all
signals. The process can still be terminated before the supervisor receives
the notification.
