The Linux Security Modules project provides a lightweight, general purpose
framework for access control.  The LSM interface enables developing
security policies as loadable kernel modules.  See http://lsm.immunix.org
for more information.

2.5.66-lsm1 patch released.  This is a rebase up to 2.5.66 as well as
some interface and module updates.  Out of tree projects will want to
resync with interface changes.

Full lsm-2.5 patch (LSM + all modules) is available at:
