A while back, I'd gone through each of the features in grsecurity and PAX. There were a number that seemed good from a security point of view, but difficult in terms of culture within the kernel. I've just started up going through these again, as well as reading the kernel hardening wiki, and I should soon have a better idea of what would be good to work on. My scope is broad enough that I want to get a good idea of where others want to go as well, as well as what brings good benefit. I suspect part of the challenge is going to be clearly describing the various features along with specific examples of already-discovered exploits that the feature would have mitigated. Most recently, I backported ARM PAN support to the Linaro stable kernels (3.18 and 4.1). David
