Default Bug#516488: RFH: kernel-patch-exec-shield -- protection against stack smashing and other attacks

Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

This kernel patch provides exec-shield, a security feature for the
Linux kernel on i386 (it is not relevant for x86_64). The patch is
present in Fedora kernels, which is also the upstream maintainer.

Since I hardly use i386 machines anymore, I need help with any of the
following:

* Co-maintaining the package
* Testing patches for new versions of the Debian kernel

The package is maintained in the collab-maint svn repository.
