I'll believe that when I see it.
There is Reiser3 XATTR code and SE Linux hooks, but they don't work.
Also Reiser4 apparently (according to the LWN articles referenced before)
needs a new system call. LSM and SE Linux used to have a system call, the
main kernel coders didn't like it and it was re-written to not use a system
Don't expect Reiser4 with an extra system-call to get into the kernel any time
soon. It won't be in Fedora as long as it's not in kernel.org.
