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. 188.8.131.52 is the latest,
The 2.6.11-mm4 branch has the updates included in 184.108.40.206, 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 220.127.116.11.
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.
18.104.22.168 headers also breaks iptables build. Hopefully the linux-libc-headers
folks will fix that soon.
