Well my guess is it would become a separate patch, to be
maintained by you outside the main kernel.

There are several such patches, with various degrees
of success and maintainability already for Linux.

Maintaining a security subsystem is a tricky job though,
not something to be taken lightly.



Buying an operating system without source is like buying
a self-assembly Space Shuttle with no instructions.
