Subject: [PATCH v3 0/1] Automatic LSM stack ordering
Date: Mon, 22 Feb 2021 16:06:07 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)


This patch series gives the opportunity to users to not manually
configure the list of LSM enabled at boot but instead always rely on the
up-to-date list of existing LSMs.  Indeed, CONFIG_LSM may never be
updated with a make oldconfig whereas users may select new LSMs over
time.  With this patch, when running make oldconfig, a new option
CONFIG_LSM_AUTO is pre-selected to delegate LSM ordering to the kernel
developers, according to the user configuration.

This third series replace the previous virtual dependencies with a new
option to automatically enable all selected LSMs.  This is cleaner,
simpler, and makes the transition more convenient.

This patch series can be applied on v5.11-7580-gea914b7ffbfd (or v5.11).
