We would be able to change this in the future if we introduced a flag like
SECCOMP_USER_NOTIF_FLAG_PIDFD_THREAD which would send a
pidfd that's for the thread, and not just the group leader. The flag could
either be XOR with SECCOMP_USER_NOTIF_FLAG_PIDFD, or
could require both. Alternatively, we can rename
SECCOMP_USER_NOTIF_FLAG_PIDFD to
SECCOMP_USER_NOTIF_FLAG_GROUP_LEADER_PIDFD.
