Linux-2.6.12-rc2
Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!

7config KEYS
8 bool "Enable access key retention support"
9 help
10 This option provides support for retaining authentication tokens and
11 access keys in the kernel.
12
13 It also includes provision of methods by which such keys might be
14 associated with a process so that network filesystems, encryption
15 support and the like can find them.
16
17 Furthermore, a special type of key is available that acts as keyring:
18 a searchable sequence of keys. Each process is equipped with access
19 to five standard keyrings: UID-specific, GID-specific, session,
20 process and thread.
21
22 If you are unsure as to whether this is required, answer N.
23
24config KEYS_DEBUG_PROC_KEYS
25 bool "Enable the /proc/keys file by which all keys may be viewed"
26 depends on KEYS
27 help
28 This option turns on support for the /proc/keys file through which
29 all the keys on the system can be listed.
30
31 This option is a slight security risk in that it makes it possible
32 for anyone to see all the keys on the system. Normally the manager
33 pretends keys that are inaccessible to a process don't exist as far
34 as that process is concerned.
35
36config SECURITY
37 bool "Enable different security models"
38 help
39 This allows you to choose different security modules to be
40 configured into your kernel.
41
42 If this option is not selected, the default Linux security
43 model will be used.
44
45 If you are unsure how to answer this question, answer N.
46
47config SECURITY_NETWORK
48 bool "Socket and Networking Security Hooks"
49 depends on SECURITY
50 help
51 This enables the socket and networking security hooks.
52 If enabled, a security module can use these hooks to
53 implement socket and networking access controls.
54 If you are unsure how to answer this question, answer N.
55
56config SECURITY_CAPABILITIES
57 tristate "Default Linux Capabilities"
58 depends on SECURITY
59 help
60 This enables the "default" Linux capabilities functionality.
61 If you are unsure how to answer this question, answer Y.

63config SECURITY_ROOTPLUG
64 tristate "Root Plug Support"
65 depends on USB && SECURITY
66 help
67 This is a sample LSM module that should only be used as such.
68 It prevents any programs running with egid == 0 if a specific
69 USB device is not present in the system.
70
71 See <http://www.linuxjournal.com/article.php?sid=6279> for
72 more information about this module.

82 Implements BSD Secure Levels as an LSM. See
83 <file:Documentation/seclvl.txt> for instructions on how to use this
84 module.
