i've started looking at making a vserver LSM module. it looks like it
won't be too tough, and i think vserver might get some new protection.
one obvious change would be the syscall method, as LSM creates a
sys_security syscall that is a multiplexor much like the sys_socketcall.
are people interested in this?
