Default Bug#605090: Update on grsecurity featureset

Ok, here's an updated patchset.

Tarball can be found at
(and already extracted in grsec-patches/ folder).

It's a folder with a quilt patche series

* 01_support-linux-3.0.patch

This is unrelated but needed to support linux3 naming scheme in

* 02_force-hostcc-version.patch

This one is needed because grsecurity ships two gcc (>= 4.5) plugins.
Those need to be built with the same compiler version as the rest of the
kernel, but right now they're built with HOSTCC which is not set right
now, so defaults to 'gcc' which is gcc-4.6 at that time. So export
HOSTCC to the (non CROSS_COMPILE) version.


This one in not directly involved with grsecurity. Could be enabled by
itself (#639919)


This one adds basic templates for a linux-grsec-base binary packages to
be built by linux-2.6 but I still didn't figured out how to patch
genorig.py to make it do it.


This is the main part, adding the featureset and config.


The main grsecurity patch, not really readable since the quilt patch
adds a patch It's basically the genuine grsecurity patch (right now
grsecurity-2.2.2-3.0.4-201108301903.patch) with two little change:

* removing the -grsec localversion
* oneliner to make it apply against debian sources
