If you're not sure where to start, try picking up all the patches we've got
so far, applying them to a reasonably recent kernel, and seeing what breaks.

As far as I know, I'm the only crash test dummy at the moment, so having
somebody else testing with a kernel config different than what I have
on my laptop would be valuable.  So far I've identified that ptrace()
and some (but not all) variants of setsockopt() have issues with Kees's
usercopy patches.

Kees:  Am I the only guy who's trying this on a SLAB rather than SLUB box?
