We went through this before. I recommended against using it, and
suggested using proper framework, such as PAGG or CKRM. However,
Guillaume preferred to use something that was in the kernel instead of
relying on another external patch. I don't have a problem with that,
but it's not mergeable. Ideally efforts would be made to consolidate to
common resource management needs, and elsa could be part of this effort.
So Guillame, feel free to use the LSM hook, but just know it's not a
mergeable work.
