    SubjectRe: [patch] exec-shield-nx-2.6.9-A1
    You have some bits in this patch that don't belong.
    They aren't even conditional on a config option or
    sysctl value.

    First, you change the permission on the /proc/*/maps file.
    Normally a remote attacker is unable to read this anyway,
    and a local setuid attack has time to try until success.
    Changing the permission might be a good idea, mostly
    because it exposes filenames, but it should be a separate

    Second, you restrict wchan. Oddly, you don't allow for
    the target task's euid to play a role, and you chose the
    CAP_SYS_NICE bit instead of some other bit. Huh? One might
    guess from CAP_SYS_NICE that the feature has now become
    hopelessly slow. Same as with the maps file, this should
    be a separate patch.
