[rsbac] user management failing after kernel update

Hi everybody,

Being absolutely enthusiastic that the rbsac-patched kernel finally made it into
Gentoo's package system I installed it today and was a little surprised to see
that I can't log in to my server after having rebooted with the new kernel.

I have exclusive RSBAC user management enabled in the kernel and the old
(shadow, etc.) have been moved out of the way, exactly as described in the handbook.
It works flawlessly with the old (2.6.19 with RSBAC 1.3.2) Kernel. In fact, it
still works with the old kernel. I'm really glad I kept it. Now I can at least
boot the server to fix the problem.

How can I migrate the user management to the new (2.6.21 with RSBAC 1.3.4)
Kernel? Booting the new kernel and using a backup rsbac configuration is not an
option, obviously, because I can boot the computer but I can't log in (neither
root nor secoff)
