Probably it's no different on Gentoo. However the required version of
PAM is not marked stable on Gentoo. Don't know why that is but without
going to a (currently) testing version of PAM it's not supported.

That said, what's the value in doing work, changing things, and then
dealing with side effects? realtime-lsm works so I use it. I'll change
when the kernel no longer supports it.

Cheers,
Mark
