Sure, AFS can do that ...

But what about the recent discussion on the removal of sys_call_table ?

(I believe it was along the lines of "it's ugly, prevent it ...", "ah,

"*no response*").

I'm a bit disappointed this has just gone in without any real discussion
on the usefulness of this for certain circumstances :(
