Bug Description

Commit c33a23ff8ffc (selftests: skip seccomp get_metadata test if not real root) in Bionic tree

Is causing compilation error for the seccomp test in ubuntu_kernel_selftests:

$ sudo make -C tools/testing/selftests TARGETS=seccomp run_tests
make: Entering directory '/home/jenkins/ubuntu-gke-4.15-bionic/tools/testing/selftests'
make[1]: Entering directory '/home/jenkins/ubuntu-gke-4.15-bionic/tools/testing/selftests/seccomp'

Commit upstream 3aa415dd2128 (selftests: skip seccomp get_metadata test if not real root) depends on d057dc4e35e1 (seccomp: add a selftest for get_metadata), but the latter has been reverted on bionic as part of bug #1837664. The get_metadata testcase doesn't exist anymore, the backport of the patch ended up changing syscall_restart instead.

So the best solution is to revert c33a23ff8ffc, which is not needed and is causing trouble.

[Test Case]
Run the seccomp kernel selftests.

[Regression potential]
No regression potential. The commit introduced a regression by being wrongly backported, so reverting it will fix the issue and has no risk.

This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed-bionic' to 'verification-done-bionic'. If the problem still exists, change the tag 'verification-needed-bionic' to 'verification-failed-bionic'.

If verification is not done by 5 working days from today, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed.

See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you!
