Hmm, I agree that it makes sense to give a short overview of each LSM. A
description of the AppArmor model and implementation can be found in the
directory that John referred to actually. I'm unsure how much of that makes
sense under Documentation/ -- what do you think?

I guess actual end user information doesn't belong in the kernel sources; that
really seems wrong.

Thanks,
Andreas
