The eBPF context is described in "[RFC v2 06/10] landlock: Add LSM hooks".

The provided eBPF functions are described in "[RFC v2 08/10] landlock:
Handle file system comparisons"
(bpf_landlock_cmp_fs_prop_with_struct_file and
bpf_landlock_cmp_fs_beneath_with_struct_file) and "[RFC v2 09/10]
landlock: Handle cgroups" (bpf_landlock_cmp_cgroup_beneath). The
function descriptions are summarized in include/uapi/linux/bpf.h .

This functions can be called by an eBPF program of type
and BPF_PROG_TYPE_LANDLOCK_MMAP_FILE as described in "[RFC v2 06/10]
landlock: Add LSM hooks".

I tried to split the commits as much as possible to ease the review. The
"[RFC v2 10/10] samples/landlock: Add sandbox example" may help to see
the whole picture.

Hope this helps,
