Source: linux-grsec
Severity: important

GRKERNSEC_RANDSTRUCT shouldn't be enabled on binary distro packages.

1) It's compile-time randomization, making it useless security wise
 (the attacker can fetch the binary from a mirror too!).

2) It prevents users from rebuilding kernel modules as the
 source packaged is distributed "cleaned".

On my systems, it prevents DKMS from working altogether.
