Sounds good, maybe the kernel is overall hardier than I thought :) But
still, if patching the kernel is not something the OP can do easily, it's
probably more effective to focus his efforts on keeping services up to
date and properly configured. Once an intruder has any access to your
system, there's lots of trouble they could cause (exploit trust
relationship, local denial or service, find vulnerable suid binaries)...
