hardened-sources-2.6.18

Today (OK, it’s yesterday now, it’s again after 12:00) I had a little fun with pappy (Alexander Gabert) preparing 2.6.18 for prime time 😀

So far all patches are applying fine and according to Alexander it even works on his workstation. But I’ll wait for Steve/Ned to get back to me telling me if this release works for them or not (as they had serious issues with their hardened desktops – something about the cursor being stuck in the corners).

You may also ask, what for is this mute-warning patch. Basically the new grsecurity patch increased the kernel’s verbosity while running make about two times 😮 . Thus we decided to revert the warnings to the ones used in vanilla (that’s via CFLAGS).
