Okay. For the scope of this series I will remove this check in the
next revision. If people feel strongly that we need it centrally
within the BPF infrastructure, we can do that as a separate patch and
discuss it there.

I think Smack and AppArmor can also use the same hook. Since we
already have a hook, I don't think anyone is blocked from
implementing policy logic for loading LSM BPF programs.

James/Kees does this sound okay?
