[Qemu-devel] [PULL 2/2] seccomp: report more useful errors from seccomp

Posted by Eduardo Otubo 37 weeks ago
From: Daniel P. Berrangé <berrange@redhat.com>

Most of the seccomp functions return errnos as a negative return
value. The code is currently ignoring these and reporting a generic
error message for all seccomp failure scenarios making debugging
painful. Report a more precise error from each failed call and include
errno if it is available.
