    SubjectRe: [PATCH] Add new TAINT_KSPLICE flag for when a Ksplice update has been loaded.

    We're thinking about using TAINT_USER to indicate when a user has
    installed a Ksplice update that they generated on their own. We'd like to
    be able to distinguish between the cases (1) where a user has generated a
    potentially-bad Ksplice update by providing their own naughty patch and
    (2) where a user is running binary Ksplice updates provided by a vendor
    that is taking care to use Ksplice properly. Our patch currently uses
    TAINT_KSPLICE to indicate whether _any_ Ksplice update has been applied.
