If you are unsure as to whether this is required, answer N.
+ int "Low address space for LSM to protect from user allocation"
+ depends on SECURITY && SECURITY_SELINUX
+ default 65536
+ This is the portion of low virtual memory which should be protected
+ from userspace allocation. Keeping a user from writing to low pages
+ can help reduce the impact of kernel NULL pointer bugs.
+ For most ia64, ppc64 and x86 users with lots of address space
+ a value of 65536 is reasonable and should cause no problems.
+ On arm and other archs it should not be higher than 32768.
+ Programs which use vm86 functionality or have some need to map
+ this low address space will need the permission specific to the
+ systems running LSM.
