Hi Rumen,
I am the maintainer of the RSBAC kernel @ Gentoo.
As you might have seen, the bug has been updated.

The rsbac-dev-sources-2.6.7-r3 and r6 kernels are basically the sames, but 
r6 has kernel related security fixes (you can see it in the ChangeLog, try 
etcat -c rsbac-dev-sources ; etcat is an utility from the gentoolkit 
ebuild i believe)

My guess would be that GCC3.4 is the problem, probably a newer kernel 
version will work (or newer rsbac that is). rsbac-dev-sources-2.6.9 is 
ready on my hdd, but there 
is no PaX support and I fear we won't see PaX for this kernel (30megs of 
source to patch, and the 2.6 kernel structure will change again in the 
upcomming versions, beside each new kernel has vulnerabilities. That are 
the words from someone in the PaX team about porting it to 2.6.9, but I 
don't have the link to his post)

I will try to install GCC3.4 this evening if I have the time


ps: please go on with the gentoo bug for any information (or dual post it)
