    We must keep in mind that anything which requires more work as root
    for common administration opens new holes. I don't think it's the
    case for kallsyms, but I mean we should not try to lock too hard,
    otherwise everyone will have a sudoers entry to do his work, and
    that's even worse than current situation.
