I can't understand why you proposed to use setuid in order to keep
secrets, but oh well.

To get mlock available to user should be a matter of making gnumach
accept vm_wire calls with hostpriv == 0. The amount of such locked
memory shall however be accounted and limited. The default on my Linux
system is 64KB.
