 I might be the one spreading most of opposing data on this - As there's
noone actively maintaining vserver+grsec, this means that all you can find
is some patch some dweeb put together. And there's a dozen of ways to do
that, and you don't even know which she used. So there's no such thing as
THE grsec+vs patch.
 As soon as there is such person ( and it seems like WOLK will include
both, and mcp said that he will make those two play nicely together ) you
can go ahead and use those. Until then - you're on your own.
