libseccomp (2.3.1-2.1ubuntu4) bionic; urgency=medium
* debian/tests/data/open.fail_filter: The libseccomp autopkgtests were
failing with glibc 2.27 due to changes in glibc which resulted in
openat() exclusively being used, without any calls to open(). This
resulted in the test process exiting normally instead of being
killed, as was expected. Fix the test failure by removing openat()
from the list of whitelisted syscalls so that the process is killed.

libseccomp (2.3.1-2ubuntu2) yakkety; urgency=medium
* Fix autopkgtest, seccomp resolution now returns negative syscall
numbers for multiplexed calls, thus direct access symbols roundtrip is
via negative numbers. E.g. 373 -> shutdown -> -113 -> shutdown.
