Subject[PATCH] remove sys_security
I've been auditing the LSM stuff a bit more..

They have registered an implemented a syscall, sys_security
that does nothing but switch into the individual modules
based on the first argument, i.e. it's ioctl() switching
on the security module instead of device node. Yuck.

Patch below removes it (no intree users), maybe selinux/etc
folks should send their actual syscall for review instead..

-LSM adds a general <function>security</function> system call that
-simply invokes the <function>sys_security</function> hook. This
-system call and hook permits security modules to implement new system
-calls for security-aware applications. The interface is similar to
-socketcall, but also has an <parameter>id</parameter> to help identify
-the security module whose call is being invoked.
-To eliminate the need for a central registry of ids,
-the recommended convention for creating the hexadecimal id value is:
-<programlisting>
-<![CDATA[
- echo "Name_of_module" | md5sum | cut -c -8
-]]>
-</programlisting>
-C code will need to prefix this result with ``0x''.
-For example, the id for ``SGI Trusted Linux'' could be used in C as:
-<programlisting>
-<![CDATA[
- #define SYS_SECURITY_MODID 0xc4c7be22
-]]>
