SubjectRe: [RFC, PATCH] sys_revoke(), just a try. (was: Re: dynamic /dev security hole?)

Nobody interrested in this syscall?

I can't code this on my own, because I don't have the experience.
Need help for this IMHO needed syscall.

And yes, I forgot to attach the patch inline, so you
can comment on it. So here it is. :)
