According to Bill Studenmund:

Mmmmm that is a good thought. I will put up what I have done since I
know that it works and have a look at doing a layered fs. It
certainly makes a lot of sense.

Yes, this is very true. At the moment the code hits very few of the
kernel files (most of the guff is actually to implement a
pseudo-device for loading the signatures) but if I want to intercept
the open and mmap calls then doing all the checks at the file system
layer sounds like a better approach.
