As can be seen in that bug report, the centosplus kernel has had
TOMOYO security module enabled since kernel-2.6.32-131.21.1.el6.

Handa-san, do you think it is a good idea to apply patches [1]
referenced on the TOMOYO 2.2 page [2]?

The cplus kernel can easily accommodate patches like that until they
eventually appear in the upstream kernel.
