Fair enough.

were intended for this use and should not overlap with other errors from
writing to /proc.

This record should be accompanied by a syscall record (and eventually
possibly a CONTAINER_ID record of the orchestrator, if it is already in
a container).  The syscall record has a res= field that already gives
this result.
