Try to get it in upstream kernel. Good luck ;)
Which one precisely do you mean?
You should probably rename the 2 new functions before to a name that matches what they do.
The function names I use in my patch are actually the original ones from the grsecurity patch. Creating the patch was mainly copy'n'paste, so I did not change any names. This helped me reduce my confusion when something didn't work out, since I could easily compare with the original patch. It should also help people to verify that my patches are correct.
Btw, there is a nice thread of grsecurity merge to mainline (with lot of flamage) going on currently. So you might find a bees nest :/
I've looked at the forum and the mailing list archive at grsecurity.com, but haven't seen any obvious flaming. OTOH, I have not read every single post, so a link would be nice.
