Looks like conflict of goals. lockdown is used in scenarios where one
really doesn't take any chance that code running w/ root privileges can
do such things (there's a lot of security critical information one can
learn from reading the raw memory).

I wonder what your actual use case is.

* why are you using lockdown and also running everything as root ?
* why are you still using the old Xvesa instead of using KMS or
framebuffer device ?
* why does mdadm want to access /dev/mem ?
