I didn't do anything regarding the vendored / bundled deps in my patches
related to CVE-2019-5736 https://bugs.gnu.org/34446.

Regarding Docker, the update to 18.09.2 ostensibly fixed CVE-2019-5736,
I suppose by updating the bundled copy of runc.

For containerd I didn't change the package at all.

Both Docker and containerd depend on our runc package. If they don't
actually use it but instead use their bundled copy, we should remove the
dependency and document the bundling, or work on unbundling.

Unfortunately this is complicated for us in recent versions of Go:
