Totally drop-in replacement, and in this case, Matt is correct, the HJL
releases have actually gotten MORE testing than the FSF release. The
only major difference that I'm aware of is -z relro is available in HJL,
but not in FSF. We also get back to all binutils testsuites passing as
expected with HJL's 91.0.2 release.
I say go for it, and also if kernel 2.6.8 is released in time, we
upgrade there as well, for the kernel vuln's.
That's just my .02c worth.
