I should have been more specific.

Thanks for the explanation, but that I understand the problems of stacking
LSM/secids, we've had that conversation a few times now. The explanation I
was hoping for had to do with this sentence:

"Introduce feature specific security operation vectors for
NetLabel, XFRM, secmark and presentation in the traditional
/proc/.../attr interfaces."

Can you explain this a bit more? When I looked at the patch - and maybe I'm
missing something - I didn't see anything in /proc that dealt with NetLabel,
XFRM, and/or Secmark.

Probably not, but I like the safety of having it defined. I guess that is why
I would prefer having netlabel_lsm_owner() defined here as well.

Fair enough.
