Subject: CVE Request: golang-seccomp incorrectly handles multiple syscall
 arguments

Hi,

https://github.com/seccomp/libseccomp-golang/issues/22 describes a bug where
golang-seccomp incorrectly generates BPFs which OR multiple arguments rather
than ANDing them. This bug was fixed here:

https://github.com/seccomp/libseccomp-golang/commit/06e7a29f36a34b8cf419aeb87b979ee508e58f9e

which is currently only in master and not the most current 0.9.0 release. Since
golang-seccomp is meant to be a golang package to facilitate reducing the
syscall surface for applications and this bug produces incorrect BPF to achieve
that when specifying more that 2 syscall arguments, this probably deserves a
CVE assignment so distributions will see the issue and incorporate the fix into
their stable releases. I've included upstream developers Matthew and Paul in CC
for comment.

Thanks
