We're actually planning to harden LKRG against exploits triggering its
unload mechanism.  Optionally excluding that at compile time is also
within consideration, as ultimate form of such hardening.  Neither
eliminates the need to also harden LKRG's sysctl interface from being
triggered by exploits, though - which is a related separate task for us.
