Actually that's wrong. The system call is changed in the kernel, so
regardless of whether or not the program was compiled/linked before or
after it will have the same effect. malloc() will return an integer
that's more random then before.
You could put grsecurity kernel on a stock redhat box, and still benefit
as much as recompiling everything from scratch.
