Weird. Yeah, that sample is broken. Allowing NULL sd is totally fine.
The point is that seccomp will use syscall_get_arguments() when it's
NULL (which is effectively what this is doing...)

The reason sd can be _non_-NULL is when an architecture has access to
the args in some way that might be faster than calling
syscall_get_arguments().

Regardless, I'm fine with this change. It should either be this or
reverting 669c4092225f, but it looks like kprobes of
__seccomp_filter() is desired on MIPS...
