I have no real objection to those patches, but it strikes me odd that
out of the 62 changed places 58 have 'current_cred()' and 4 have NULL as
argument.

I can't see why this would ever end up with anything else than
current_cred() or NULL and NULL being the 'special' case. So why not
having security_locked_down_no_cred() and make current_cred() implicit
for security_locked_down() which avoids most of the churn and just makes
the special cases special. I might be missing something though.

Thanks,
