    who, me? umm...

    I can see that a patch like this would have a place in a general
    security-hardened kernel: one which closes off all the means by which root
    can alter the running kernel.

    But that's a specialised thing which interested parties can maintain as a
    standalone patch, and bringing just one part of it into the main kernel
    seems rather arbitrary.
