    Well 2.4.14 is now out, and a few new things have changed in the LSM
    tree, so here's a new release.
    Note, the release structure has changed a bit.  Since there are third
    party Security modules in the LSM tree, we are going to be releasing 2
    patches, the first patch:
    contains the base LSM patch, the dummy module, and the capabilities
    The second patch:
    can be applied on top of the first patch.  It currently contains the
    port of the OpenWall RLIMIT_NPROC feature by Emily Ratliff
    <ratliffat_private> and the DTE Security module by Serge Hallyn
    (see http://www.cs.wm.edu/~hallyn/dte for more info.)  These modules are
    provided as an example of how to use the LSM patch, and have not been
    tested by the LSM main developers.  Use at your own risk :)
    If you want both patches already applied together (ready to be applied
    to a clean 2.4.14 tree, grab:
