To perform DAC before MAC, cloning DAC code (like this patch) or some modifications against existing kernel code (such as non-static may_open()) are needed.
This posting is the result of our intention that all changes should be within security/* . We are now aiming TOMOYO Linux to be merged without messing up the existing kernel code. (Also we put the code of singly linked list TOMOYO Linux uses not in include/linux/list.h but in security/tomoyo/common.h to avoid recomplilation.)
We are ready to remove DAC code in TOMOYO Linux LSM module for now. (But DAC should be performed before MAC, it's our future work.) Since DAC is performed after security_path_*() hooks, this approach has no impact to the semantics of TOMOYO Linux. Is it preferable?

Not tested yet... But I don't think problem occurs.
