    Okay, what I've learned about this patch...
    removing the umount_root argument from wherever it appears 
    allows it to compile, but it still won't boot APPARENTLY
    because one of the hooks gets called from main.c before 
    the security_scaffolding_startup() function ... I suspect
    inside proc_root_init()....
    I can get the patched kernel to boot by moving the startup 
    up a few lines, but have NO idea of what the impact of that 
    might be or specifically where the panic is, so I won't hazard
    offering a patch that may make things worse, but hopefully,
    this info will give more knowlegable people someplace to look.
