Could you reduce a number of system calls for RSBAC?
Each new kernel version have a couple of new syscalls (e.g. for XFS, 
LSM, ... ) and we'll have a big problems in the future.
We already have a big problems to merge RSBAC patch with big number 
other patches with own additional system calls.

What about one big system call like ioctl?

About admin tools: it's not a big problem to use old admin tools for the 
old versions.
