Calling it eventpollfs might be misleading given that it can also be used for other purposes now. I suppose you could make eventpollfs_t a typealias to a new anon_inodefs_t type.
Greg KH created securityfs in 2005 to avoid having every security module introduce their own pseudo filesystem and mount point. Motivated by AppArmor, I think, and only used by it so far AFAIK. In theory, we should replace selinuxfs with nodes in securityfs, but doing so would be rather disruptive to userspace and provide us with no real gain in functionality.
