what kind of hole have you been in for about lthe last 4 years.. Hes talking about __REMOVEING__ KHTTPD from the 2.5/2.6 kernels. khttpd was started long ago and tux as well has been around for a few years..
It makes sense from a legal standpoint (as was mentioned b4) and as well from a security standpoint.. having all syscalls have to be registered allows for things like ACLs on syscals through LKMS.
Ahem.. Like Microsoft never restriced developers in what they could doo esp from a driver standpoint ??
