Subject: Re: config_jump_label Trouble with compiling

Hi all,

Ganime first e-mailed us about this privately.  Unfortunately, Ganime
still has not joined the list, hence the CC on this reply.

We've counted your vote to have this supported.  Thanks.

For now, please enable CONFIG_JUMP_LABEL to use LKRG.

It's up to Adam whether and when to implement this support.  He might
make the corresponding git commits soon, not soon, or not at all.

Maybe it was a bad idea to ask people to contact us about this, after
all, as this seems to have created unjustified expectations.

I'm not familiar with lockdown, but I guess you'd need to have the LKRG
module signed.  No troubles are expected.  Apparently, Mikhail Morfikov
who is here on lkrg-users has such a setup:

There are no specific guidelines on what other protection mechanisms you
should or should not use along with LKRG.  My advice is that you think
of what threat models are relevant to your use case and use protection
mechanisms that fit those threat models.

LKRG should be built against the kernel build tree that you actually
intend to use.  So if you're going to change kernel build options, you
should preferably (and might have to) rebuild LKRG as well.  If you're
only going to change kernel command-line parameters without rebuilding
the kernel, then you don't need to rebuild LKRG.
