I'm using Alpine Linux for a time-urgent and security-critical project
happening this weekend, and would really like to see this fixed. However,
I'm not familiar with aports or the way you build kernels in Alpine. Is
anyone available to update the kernel in linux-grsec in the 3.4-stable
branch and/or backport the patch, sometime soon?

best,
Kevin
