More kernel queries

This is really directed to kernel hacking types, RedHat and Dell lurkers
on the list!
I want to compile in the latest patches of grsecurity that have a process
accounting system included but may I ask for advice first. If anyone has
already done this, some specific guidance would be appreciated.
The system is PE2650/6GB (4+2 redundant to avoid the bigmen problems at
the moment) and RH8.0.
The grsecurity patches require 2.4.20 but the latest RH version is
2.4.18-24.7 at least on the errata page (3 Feb 03).
It is possible that some of the patches from 2.4.18 to 2.4.18-24.7 have
found their way into 2.4.20.
I would like if possible to retain any changes RH have put in and that
will have been tested by Dell.
The grsecurity patch will not work with 2.4.18-24.7 (I expect although I
haven't tried this!)
What is a suggested path?
