    Since it looks like your project lives as a kernel module with almost no
    modifications to the kernel proper (with the exception of the 2 exported
    symbols, it doesn't look like the LSM needs to be modified to work with
    The goal of the LSM is that a project like yours could just use the LSM
    interface to add your special support to the kernel.  It does not
    dictate any kind of security policy. 
    (minor nit, you might want to change your coding style to match the
    Documentation/CodingStyle to have a chance to get it accepted into the
    kernel proper.)
    Thanks though,
