Yes, it just works!

I started with Linux when patching your own kernel was expected, and 
something you did regularly.  So I've never had any aversion to patching 
kernels, running beta kernels on servers, etc.  I can understand how you 
might get nervous about it though.

One thing to note with grsecurity, lsm, and probably many other kernel 
patches is that the feature set that's available depends on the version of 
the kernel you use.  The current grsecurity kernel-patch package has two 
versions of the patch, 1.9.2 for kernels >= 2.4.16 and 1.8.9 for kernels <= 
2.4.14.  I am not sure which version you'll get if you apply it to 2.4.15.

If you send email to me or to a mailing list that I use which has >4 lines
of legalistic junk at the end then you are specifically authorizing me to do
whatever I wish with the message and all other messages from your domain, by
posting the message you agree that your long legalistic sig is void.
