    Not sure this is a solution to compiling the LSM patches, but it's pretty
    good.  2.4.5 compiles perfectly well without the LSM patches (already ran
    my benchmarks against it.)  The problem is local to LSM (and other patches
    that have already made it into the "virgin kernel").
    Running kernel ON kernel is a good idea, for testing some things,
    but the objective is to get a running kernel from boot... although
    having a "safety net" vis-a-vis(with regard to) an underlying kernel
    would sure save me time.
    I'll try it.
    Haven't tried it yet, I'm probably an idiot.

    Broken?  How?  English is a very flexible thing.  Say nearly 
    what you mean, you're in. :)
