Subject: [PATCH v7 0/2] security: Yama LSM

As discussed at the Linux Security Summit, I'm resubmitting this
code. As an LSM, it has coherent policy around expanding specific DAC
behaviors. There is no need for it to be a full-blown MAC, since it is
not intended to be one, but rather to be a simplified expansion to DAC,
with system-wide knobs. See the specific patches for details...

This version only contains the ptrace restrictions, since a path has
been cleared for that (thanks Roland). The link restriction discussion
can continue separately. In the meantime, I will carry it as a patch here:;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/yama
