    How about:
    	/usr/src/linux/lsm		base directory
    	/usr/src/linux/lsm/<module>	specific security implementation
    This could be expanded to:
    where files are the multiple files that compose the module.
    For those modules that use external configuration files, the configuration files
    could be:
    	/lib/modules/<linux version>/lsm/<module>.o	The module load image
    	/lib/modules/<linux version>/lsm/<module>.config	the config file
    Though this would be optional - a config parser/loader program could relocate
    the config file anywhere it wanted.
