Security: Add __init to register_security to disable load a security module on runtime
>That won't become a problem unless kernel command line is tampered. Giving permissions to tamper kernel command line is the problem. The user also can modify /etc/selinuc/config, set SELINUX=disabled. Honestly speaking, I prefer register_security() being exported to kernel modules. New kernel doesn't expor... 28 Feb 2010 01:19

[net-next PATCH v6 0/3] net: reserve ports for applications using fixed port numbers
This patch introduces /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_local_reserved_ports which allows users to reserve ports for third-party applications. The reserved ports will not be used by automatic port assignments (e.g. when calling connect() or bind() with port number 0). Explicit port allocation behavior is unchanged.
