Bug#474648: please re-enable CONFIG_SECCOMP, it's harmless (and needed)

Package: linux-image-2.6.24-1-amd64
Version: 2.6.24-5
Severity: important

CONFIG_SECCOMP was disabled for performance reasons, but it has always
been harmless. Quoting the author:

 | On x86-64 SECCOMP generates absoutely zero performance hit.
 | The original seccomp patch for x86 also generated absolutely zero
 | performance hit, both pratically and theoretically too. _zero_ CPU
 | cycles of difference, zero cachelines.

 (From http://marc.info/?l=linux-kernel&m=115235061904105)

Please re-enable this feature. It is needed for CPUShare (see #417130).
