Older seccomp-based filters used in container frameworks will block faccessat2
calls as it's a relatively new syscall.  This isn't a big problem with
glibc <2.33 but 2.33 will call faccessat2 itself, get EPERM, and thenn be confused
about what to do as EPERM isn't an expected error code.

This manifests itself as mysterious errors, for example a kernel failing to link.

The root cause of bad seccomp filters is mostly fixed (systemd 247, Docker 20.10.0)
but we can't expect everyone to upgrade, so add a workaound (originally from 
Red Hat) to handle EPERM like ENOSYS and fallback to faccessat().
