AppArmor already has a DFA implementation that takes a DFA machine
from userspace and runs it against file paths; see e.g.
aa_dfa_match(). Did you look into whether you could move their DFA to
some place like lib/ and reuse it instead of adding yet another
generic rule interface to the kernel?

Throughout the series, you are adding files that both add an SPDX
identifier and have a description of the license in the comment block
at the top. The SPDX identifier already identifies the license.
