comment My process was killed but I cannot understand the kernel notice
I finally managed to find a code based solution and I posted it on stackoverflow. I will add this answer here but I will accept your answer as this enabled me to identify the how and why of it all. Many thanks

comment My process was killed but I cannot understand the kernel notice
Thankyou for your answer - it is very helpful. Unfortunately, when my application is opening the serial port, the sak that I just disabled gets re-enabled. I must be setting a particular flag combination that is re-enabling the SAK on /dev/ttyS0

Thanks for this answer. I realise now that chmod is not sufficient for my requirements and I need to use chattr +i on my files. Thanks again
