Anyone know what Brad Spender and the PaX Team intend for long term
support of the stable grsecurity patches?

I'd prefer that Alpine track either the grsecurity 3.x stable patch
or the testing patch since upstream doesn't provide support for
older or backported patches.

Neither option seems particularly attractive though - the former
would mean a move to the 3.2 kernel and the latter a move to the
3.5 one.
