15 i would be all for it ...
16 i dont use any of the kernels in sys-kernels for a variety of reasons ... but
17 one kernel that i use in many places (routers/servers/etc...) is a hand
18 rolled vanilla kernel with just the grsec patch ...
19 in other words, i would utilize this new kern on my boxes :)
20 it would also be pretty sweet to have up-to-date support for grsec ... brad
21 has done amazing things with his latest code.
