I had the chance to have the code checked by Rusty Russell 2 weeks ago.
He agreed the implementation looks clean, but for the code to be merged
in Linus tree there are few things that must happen:
1. People should start using it and providing feedback to the LKML.
2. More people should use it (maybe a major distro using it for securing
bind would provide a nice set of bug reports??)
3. Linus should hear about it. And from people actually using it and
finding it a Good Thing (tm).
After the things above happen, there is a very small chance. Linus does
not usually go hunting for code nor merges patches nobody has tested. At
least, nobody from the "insiders" (i.e., the "unofficial core team").
