This 2.6.11.x series is a mess. The -as branch is still following 2.6.10. 
Grsecurity is patching against 2.6.11 mainline. is the latest,

The 2.6.11-mm4 branch has the updates included in, but then 
grsecurity won't apply.

And lfs-unstable is still suggesting we use the security fix for the 
capabilities module, which is only partially fixed in

Anyone have suggestions? Or shall we just wait for 2.6.12.

I also noticed glibc's testsuite has a couple test failures because of changed 
in 2.6.11 kernel and headers. This issue was reported to libc-hackers over a 
month ago and has yet to be resolved. headers also breaks iptables build. Hopefully the linux-libc-headers 
folks will fix that soon.
