[alpine-devel] [PATCH] linux-grsec: fix bus error with i810 graphics

I just recently installed Alpine 3.0 on an old computer with 256 MB RAM,
800 MHz PIII CPU, and i810 graphics; it's hooked up to a 1280x1024
monitor, so vesa sucks.
When I installed xf86-video-intel, X died from a bus error.
This seems to be a known problem with Linux 3.14; the included patch
(found online) fixed it for me.

Please add this; it takes several hours to build a kernel on that
computer.
The patch may need adjustment, though; patch applied it with fuzz=2.

Thanks,
Isaac Dunham.
