SE Linux is in 2.6.0 and 2.6.1.  Herbert has stated that he will build SE 
Linux into 2.6.1 if he has time.

For PaX to be considered we need someone to maintain a kernel-patch-pax 
package that contains a patch which applies to a Debian kernel source.  
No-one has been willing to do this so far.

Steve Kemp's gcc has been working well for me.  I've built kernels and 
applications with it and not found any problems.  I expect that it will 
become a standard feature in Debian's gcc soon.
