Summary0004358: Kernels should be built with CONFIG_SECCOMP_FILTER
DescriptionAPT wants CONFIG_SECCOMP_FILTER for improved sandboxing of downloads in the 1.6 series. Other applications also use it for sandboxing.

Some targets, like rpi(2?) are built without it.

APT emits a warning about missing support ("Could not load seccomp policy: Invalid argument"), which definitely has to be reworded, but please stop providing kernel images without it.

This should be addressed in the 2017.3 release. There are a few images where the vendor kernels are simply too old to support SECCOMP_FILTER, so not sure exactly what to do there. Will need to look at numbers.

Due to the age of the OS (Kali Moto [v1], Kali Safi [v2], Kali Rolling <= 2018.2), these legacy versions are no longer supported.
