Apparently not even its user<->kernel interface was reviewed. This violates "one value per file in sysfs":

    [root@tomoyo]# cat /sys/kernel/security/tomoyo/meminfo Shared: 61440 Private: 69632 Dynamic: 768 Total: 131840

    You can set memory quota by writing to this file.     (Example)
    [root@tomoyo]# echo Shared: 2097152 > /sys/kernel/security/tomoyo/meminfo     [root@tomoyo]# echo Private: 2097152 > /sys/kernel/security/tomoyo/meminfo

(not to mention being ugly as hell).

This is totaly useless once tomoyo is merged:

  • /sys/kernel/security/tomoyo/version **

    This file is used for getting TOMOYO Linux's version.     (Example)
    [root@etch]# cat /sys/kernel/security/tomoyo/version     2.2.0-pre
