Glenn, i like to try this for a kernel..  it should need just be a patched 
kernel (so need to recompile) and a loaded kernel or what do you think?
i don't know so much about cross-compile, but i like to learn it.. if also 
someone else like to join the try or so, you're welcome :)

Timo, you'r right about X.. that's a big hole.. how is it on qtmoko, because 
of no x-server?

I think the main goal should be to upstream our changes, not add new
changes that are not upstream.

What has grsecurity to do with debugging?

I'd first urge people to run their X appliations as non-root :-)
