Thank you for clarification. And for the quality of code, btw. It's very
interesting read. And the more I read it, the more I wonder why OpenBSD
guys didn't implement something like this or that... "We want to keep
things simple" doesn't work here because, for example, GRKERNSEC_BRUTE
is very simple yet very effective. Too bad OpenBSD users doesn't get
informed about the sutuation and often blindly believe in that KISS
