I can certainly do that, but the size of the drivers patch is going to be
tremendous.  I just figured that smaller patches would be less offensive to
upstream's delicate sensibilities =)

Just working on this in my spare time.  I've wanted to see PaX/grsecurity
included upstream for a long while now.  Funding is unnecessary, as it
wouldn't enable me to get this finished any more quickly than I would
otherwise.  I'll publish my tree to github so others can help.
