the kernel should prevent loading/unloading of LKMs
whenever the secure level is >= 1. that means if you
are doing kernel development you just build a kernel
which has securelevel set to -1. you won't be doing
kernel development on a production machine, so there's
no problem. right?
yup. i load roland's defeat-securelevel.o so i can hack with lkm's
from /etc/rc.local, so that it is able to be loaded (init doesn't
raise the securelevel until /etc/rc finishes..)
