A Landlock object enables to identify a kernel object (e.g. an inode).
A Landlock rule is a set of access rights allowed on an object.  Rules
are grouped in rulesets that may be tied to a set of processes (i.e.
subjects) to enforce a scoped access-control (i.e. a domain).

Because Landlock's goal is to empower any process (especially
unprivileged ones) to sandbox themselves, we can't rely on a system-wide
object identification such as file extended attributes.  Indeed, we need
innocuous, composable and modular access-controls.

The main challenge with these constraints is to identify kernel objects
while this identification is useful (i.e. when a security policy makes
use of this object).  But this identification data should be freed once
no policy is using it.  This ephemeral tagging should not and may not be
written in the filesystem.  We then need to manage the lifetime of a
rule according to the lifetime of its object.  To avoid a global lock,
this implementation make use of RCU and counters to safely reference
objects.

A following commit uses this generic object management for inodes.

Changes since v18:
* Account objects to kmemcg.

Changes since v14:
* Simplify the object, rule and ruleset management at the expense of a
  less aggressive memory freeing (contributed by Jann Horn, with
  additional modifications):
  - Remove object->list aggregating the rules tied to an object.
  - Remove landlock_get_object(), landlock_drop_object(),
    {get,put}_object_cleaner() and landlock_rule_is_disabled().
  - Rewrite landlock_put_object() to use a more simple mechanism
    (no tricky RCU).
  - Replace enum landlock_object_type and landlock_release_object() with
    landlock_object_underops->release()
  - Adjust unions and Sparse annotations.
  Cf. https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/CAG48ez21bEn0wL1bbmTiiu8j9jP5iEWtHOwz4tURUJ+ki0ydYw@mail.gmail.com/
* Merge struct landlock_rule into landlock_ruleset_elem to simplify the
  rule management.
* Constify variables.
* Improve kernel documentation.
* Cosmetic variable renames.
* Remove the "default" in the Kconfig (suggested by Jann Horn).
* Only use refcount_inc() through getter helpers.
* Update Kconfig description.

Changes since v13:
* New dedicated implementation, removing the need for eBPF.

+	  Landlock is a safe sandboxing mechanism which enables processes to
+	  restrict themselves (and their future children) by gradually
+	  enforcing tailored access control policies.  A security policy is a
+	  set of access rights (e.g. open a file in read-only, make a
+	  directory) tied to a file hierarchy.  The configuration can be set by
+	  any processes, including unprivileged ones, thanks to the landlock()
+	  system call.
+
+	  See Documentation/security/landlock/ for further information.
+
+	  If you are unsure how to answer this question, answer N.
