Hi Philip - Thanks again for filing this bug.

Per our IRC conversation, you were able to solve your problem by rebuilding and packaging libusb4java yourself. That solved the need for the name_to_handle_at() syscall.

The name_to_handle_at() syscall is one in a family of syscalls that we prefer not to allow in ubuntu-core-security due to concerns about file handles being used to break out of confinement.

I'm going to mark this bug as Won't Fix. Please let us know if you hit this issue again and we can discuss possible solutions again. Thanks!
