We talked about starting to use `strict_provenance` when it came out
-- what is the latest status? i.e. do you know if it is expected that
it will pass FCP etc.? (my understanding originally was that it was an
experiment).

If it is likely to become stable, then I agree it could be nice to
start using it before a lot of kernel code gets written without it.

Thanks Gary!

Cheers,
Miguel
