Hi,
I was wondering how others are dealing with this, beyond the runtime patch on bootup.  It seems like a tossup between grabbing/patching kernel source and waiting for the security update, does anyone know a rough eta on a safe gutsy kernel package?  Thanks for the help, this is new territory for me.
