Hi,

Attached is a quick RFC patch for modifying the way the LSM's handle
prctl() checks. Currently, the only thing LSMs can do with prctl() calls
is add more restrictions to their use than the default kernel.

What this patch does is make it possible for an LSM to fake a successful
prctl() call, and also support LSM-specific prctl()s; ones that are only
supported when the particular LSM is loaded.

Please comment

Thanks

Andrew
