FWIW, I've got

	no options      FILEASSOC       # fileassoc(9) - required for Veriexec
	no pseudo-device veriexec

in my kernel config, which just includes GENERIC then tweaks a few
different things.  I didn't figure the (admittedly unmeasured) hit on
exec times was worth it for a feature I never plan on using.
