    Hm, I ment in the kernel source tree, not the whole absolute tree.
    'lsm' might be ok for the root directory, but there is already a
    'security' directory that we have created.  That describes what is going
    on much better (the 'l' in 'lsm' is redundant within the kernel tree).

    Configuration files don't belong in the /lib/modules/... tree, check the
    LSB document.  That's what /etc (and possibly /var, haven't read the
    latest spec) is for.
