Re: [RFC] [Stacking v4 2/3] New version of SELinux patch to support stacking

Oh, so it does.  Sorry.

The attached patch moves the helper to security.c:__vm_enough_memory(),
and switches dummy_vm_enough_memory to use it as well.  cap_ and dummy_
use their own capable() functions for CAP_SYS_ADMIN.

I hope I've got the logic right this time.  Behavior seems the same as
under FC3 stock kernel, but honestly neither does what I'd expect.  (I
plan to look into why next week  :)

FYI, I will be on the road this weekend without net access.
