it apparently wasn't obvious to you. i'm not even sure it was obvious to the author else one would have to accuse him with intentionally misleading his readers which i'm fairly sure he didn't intend to.
as a sidenote, there was no elaborate attempt needed to find said bug, unless you consider reading kernel changelogs such a challenge (which at times i could even agree with, mind you).
> Your refusal to engage the author directly
well, i tried but got this: this user has disabled anonymous posting.
i somehow don't feel like subscribing to yet another blog when Dan Walsh reads LWN already and LWN has a tiny bit bigger readership anyway.
> I am sure you are educating a few people along the way.
i certainly hope so. for example, you learned the other day the difference between bugs and exploits. now you learned that MAC systems were never meant to prevent 'evil things'. there's a lot more to learn of course.
