    Can someone please put this patch into some context, where it's not
    completely pointless? As is it does not make anything more secure.
    Why is the kernel more trustable than a kernel module?
    If someone could show me how I can trust the running kernel, it should be
    rather easy to extend the same measures to modules without the need for
    this patch.
