Putting rickrolling in kernel space
Kernelroll is a linux kernel module for advanced rickrolling.
It works by patching the open() system call to open a specified music
file instead of other music files. Currently, it only checks if the file
extension "mp3" is present and calls the original open() with the
supplied path instead.
WARNING: There is probably a performance penalty and your kernel might
crash at a very inappropriate time and cause data loss! You are
responsible for the code you load into your kernel!
But most probably, it will be alright! ;)
_LWN_ comments: 'Acceptance into the mainline not guaranteed.'
