So I'd find a patch like the attached to be perfectly acceptable (in fact, we should have done this long ago). That said, for a kernel hardening thing, I think it would be much more important to just make sure that KASLR is enabled much more. Right now I think it's disabled in practice if you enable hibernation support, and I think most distros do that. So I think that in *practice*, kaslr is much more likely to be defeated by much more mundane reasons. Linus View attachment "patch.diff" of type "text/plain" (1850 bytes)
