for the LSM API to be modified enough to let their code run (after that

approved for the kernel, but the LSM hooks are the most critical)

Remember that the SELinux API's essentially belong to everyone under the GPL.
So its not an excuse for falling into NIH syndrome and putting a bunch of
new stuff into the kernel that could instead be added as a small
extension to what already exists.

but the SELinux API's are not the core security API's in Linux, the LSM API's are. and AA is useing the LSM API's (extending them where they and SELinux don't do what's needed)
