Hi! Welcome to the list! If you're familiar with mm areas, I'd say a great place to start would be to help finish up the zero-poisoning work, especially extracting the optimizations that PaX did for slabs to avoid, etc. After that, collecting all the settings into a single CONFIG_* would be great. Right now things are kind of scattered around between CONFIG and kernel boot parameters.
