I don't think there is a simple solution for the case of "strace -u"
because the seccomp filter has to be installed as late as possible before
the execve, and reordering it would case very interesting effects, e.g.
the code implementing -u would be filtered through the installed seccomp

It makes sense to fix a more simple case of privileged
"strace --seccomp-bpf" without -u option first, this would probably
require to test whether a seccomp filter can be installed without
if it's the case.
