    No, you can do this from within an LSM and the kernel hackers don't have to deal
    with it....

    (tech note - don't call register_sysctl_table() from within a security_initcall().
    Use a separate __initcall() that gets called later - security_initcall() happens
    before the kernel has the sysctl infrastructure in place. Guess how I know that? ;)
