My team has been working on the verifier area to support appended
signatures (used to sign Linux kernel modules, and on at least powerpc64
also used to sign the kernel), so I have some familiarity with the
area. Where would I find the original patch?
Any guidance you're willing to offer would be welcome -- I'm hoping to find a good chunk of time this weekend, but it's been ~20 years since I spent the bulk of my time in C, so there's been a bit of skillset atrophy; I'm trying to be slow and cautious. The next step I'm planning on taking is amending the test framework to automate attaching gdb to its test cases; with that done, I expect to be in a place to start walking through the existing code and making notes on how existing behavior squares with the RFC.
