Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!

+config KEYS
+ bool "Enable access key retention support"
+ help
+ This option provides support for retaining authentication tokens and
+ access keys in the kernel.
+
+ It also includes provision of methods by which such keys might be
+ associated with a process so that network filesystems, encryption
+ support and the like can find them.
+
+ Furthermore, a special type of key is available that acts as keyring:
+ a searchable sequence of keys. Each process is equipped with access
+ to five standard keyrings: UID-specific, GID-specific, session,
+ process and thread.
+
+ If you are unsure as to whether this is required, answer N.
+
+config KEYS_DEBUG_PROC_KEYS
+ bool "Enable the /proc/keys file by which all keys may be viewed"
+ depends on KEYS
+ help
+ This option turns on support for the /proc/keys file through which
+ all the keys on the system can be listed.
+
+ This option is a slight security risk in that it makes it possible
+ for anyone to see all the keys on the system. Normally the manager
+ pretends keys that are inaccessible to a process don't exist as far
+ as that process is concerned.
+
+config SECURITY
+ bool "Enable different security models"
+ help
+ This allows you to choose different security modules to be
+ configured into your kernel.
+
+ If this option is not selected, the default Linux security
+ model will be used.
+
+ If you are unsure how to answer this question, answer N.
+
+config SECURITY_NETWORK
+ bool "Socket and Networking Security Hooks"
+ depends on SECURITY
+ help
+ This enables the socket and networking security hooks.
+ If enabled, a security module can use these hooks to
+ implement socket and networking access controls.
+ If you are unsure how to answer this question, answer N.
+
+config SECURITY_CAPABILITIES
+ tristate "Default Linux Capabilities"
+ depends on SECURITY
+ help
+ This enables the "default" Linux capabilities functionality.
+ If you are unsure how to answer this question, answer Y.
+
+config SECURITY_ROOTPLUG
+ tristate "Root Plug Support"
+ depends on USB && SECURITY
+ help
+ This is a sample LSM module that should only be used as such.
+ It prevents any programs running with egid == 0 if a specific
+ USB device is not present in the system.
+
+ See <http://www.linuxjournal.com/article.php?sid=6279> for
+ more information about this module.
+
+ If you are unsure how to answer this question, answer N.
+
+config SECURITY_SECLVL
+ tristate "BSD Secure Levels"
+ depends on SECURITY
+ select CRYPTO
+ select CRYPTO_SHA1
+ help
+ Implements BSD Secure Levels as an LSM. See
+ <file:Documentation/seclvl.txt> for instructions on how to use this
+ module.
+
+ If you are unsure how to answer this question, answer N.
