Regarding this, and knowing the opinions of several self-described
security pundits and the like, I view LKMs as rather useful creatures,
and would like to see approaches on how to make it work instead of
the constant questioning of "Why do you want to do that?"  "BECAUSE
I WANT TO LOAD A @#($#@ LKM, THAT'S WHY!".  Knowledge.  The ability
to do something in a different manner.  We didn't come this far by telling
the user "You don't need to know how to do this" (at least mostly).
