psneuter (by scotty2)

Description from the code:

// psneuter.c, written by scotty2.

// neuter the android property service.

// ashmem allows us to restrict permissions for a page further, but not relax them.
// adb relies on the ability to read ro.secure to know whether to drop its privileges or not;
// if it can't read the ro.secure property (because perhaps it couldn't map the ashmem page... :)
// then it will come up as root under the assumption that ro.secure is off.
// this will have the unfortunate side effect of rendering any of the bionic userspace that relies on the property
// service and things like dns broken.
// thus, we will want to use this, see if we can fix the misc partition, and downgrade the firmware as a whole to something more root friendly.
