I read the current evolvement of the LSM framework and its ongoing
licensing discussions with great affection and joy :) This is what

familiar with the whole LSM "patch" yet. It seems as if there are
multiple licenses needed. [Well, that's what we have the MODULE_LICENSE
for then.]

I put their license on the page too. Enjoy the binary software license:
