Indeed, it means that various distros like Arch Linux don't offer a grsecurity kernel anymore. However, the maintainer of that kernel, Daniel Micay, is now offering a linux-hardened kernel
. It's based on the linux-hardened project
where Daniel Micay, Kees Cook and other participants try to implement grsecurity/PaX patches even before they land in the mainline kernel through the work of the Kernel Self-Protection Project
Ultimately, all distros will benefit from this work. The recent grsecurity decision might even accelerate this process.
