{sigh}

First off, please use lore.kernel.org links, we don't control lkml.org
and it often times has been down.

Also, you need to put all of the information in the changelog, referring
to another place isn't always the best thing, considering you will be
looking this up in 20+ years to try to figure out why people came up
with such a crazy design.

But, the main point is, no, we did not decide on this. "trust" is a
policy decision to make by userspace, it is independant of "location",
while you are tieing it directly here, which is what I explicitly said
NOT to do.

So again, no, I will NAK this patch as-is, sorry, you are mixing things
together in a way that it should not do at this point in time.
