Hi folks.

The main line kernel has ported some randomization stuffs from it to 2.6.26.x. 
So, Will this be the future of kernel protection? Someone in this list test 
it? And about PaX?

I remember Linus refusing to put PaX on main kernel, because the libc return 
is not blocked by PaX resources, and now is a accepting from another project 
which try to do the same things than PaX. &:-(
