Except that right now, there are serious problems with udev since
systemd{evil,isease,isaster,ictator} modified some configuration 
files which now require the use of seccomp (as far as I understand).
This is despite the fact that all SECCOMP options are enabled in my
kernel and the proper libraries are installed as far as I know.

The relevant parameters which have to be commented out in files
under /lib/systemd are:

#RestrictAddressFamilies=AF_UNIX AF_NETLINK AF_INET AF_INET6

Otherwise the machine will not boot/reboot.
