the grsec people chose to use the localversion way to put the grsec option
behind the kernel instead of patching the makefile (which, in every version
of the kernel has to be corrected). so it's quite normal to do so imho.

so basicly , it's a problem of make-kpkg, which doesnt seem to handle it all
that well...

time to warn debian people about this? or does the community feel that i
should change the patch? (and grsecurity theirs?)

for me, the localversion way to do things is a lot easier and more flexible

just my 2 cents...
