slightly modified patch attached to the bug. (The www.dazuko.org patch
didn't work on openSUSE.)

Ok......then it looks like it's NOT fixed yet. I won't ask why support was dropped for LSM before proper support for dazuko.

But that's the "fault" of the kernel devs, not suse people. In fact, all distros will be affected as they upgrade their kernels. It might be argued that the fault is of the dazuko people for not including the code internal to the kernel.

That is possible. Why is it that things like this happen? Why is it that groups don't work together?!

Placing the dazuko code, as is now, in the kernel (non module) requires distributing another (one more) version of the kernel, or each user compiling his own. The redirfs approach appears to not be working currently right.

So I understand....supposed to be a new version by the end of this month that will correct all this. We can only hope.
