Heya Martin. Glad to see you again over here. This time we need work
together if we want dapper to take profit of our efforts ;).

That would be nice. Any clues on how can we do that? I'll try to have a
look over other module packages source.

We need powerpc box, and checking of the powerpc headers for right
ABI/API. After that, build, test and upload them. Will be plain easy if
the headers are working.

Yeah. /etc/modprobe.conf doesn't get updated. Thus, changes introduced
by the 'vsecurity.modprobe' file inside /etc/modprobe.d/ are not made
available. What's the right way to update it? update-modules seems not

Cheers, take care!
