This change is correct, libseccomp still requires seccomp in
DISTRO_FEATURES, so anything depending on it should have the same
restriction.
Right, I understand how/why it works like this .. but it is super clunky when we
can't just depend on something that is now in core, without needing to
sprinkle distro checks everywhere.

As the list of recipes gets larger with that check, it really isn't an optional distro
feature for using meta virt at all, and it would be nice if we could just do the
check once and be done with it.
Just a side note that these patches fix issues with yocto-check-layer.

seccomp is now in default DISTRO_FEATURES, but not through BACKFILL
feature, so many existing DISTROs didn't get it automatically added and
requiring it is the right way to automatically skip such recipes.

What branch are you working with ?

Now that seccomp is in core, we no longer have those restrictions, so
I assume this is on an older branch ?

The libseccomp package is only available if seccomp is in
