Actually, went without a hitch.. no issues really.. iptables was fine,
grsecurity went in fine, and all and all.. it was painless. Even using the
.config from a 2.6.x kernel onto a 2.4.x kernel went fine.

Interesting read, although it doesn't help. Switching to that model makes it
impossible to contribute to kernel development without actually being a kernel
developer (and checking it into kernel cvs). So if you want to write patches
for a kernel, you'd have to basically re-write it mostly from scratch/hacks to
ever get it to work on each version. This method will do exactly what it has
done to the PaX team, discourage them from writing for it.. and forcing them
to write for a kernel on its way to obsoletion. Oh well, it's a good solution
for some, bad for others.
