    True.  Although the ability to run the kernel with only "olde style"
    security may be useful, I'm trying to get results up with a capabilities
    module loaded.

    Have, off-list.  Having some trouble getting the module to initialize
    when everything is compiled with .config going totally default (except, 
    of course, the target option set to i586 for my current benchmark
    systems) except for CONFIG_CAPABILITIES=m.  It's probably me... but any
    help would be appreciated.

    My pleasure.  I'm pleasantly surprised that they both reinforce the 
    assertions about overhead AND point to a place or two that optimization
    might be helpful.
    The results posted to list AND the RAW DATA are now at 
    Although, it's a "quick-html" job... will beautify it later.
