I think you may be confused still ;) Grsecurity has its own RBAC system (I haven't given it a fancy name) which is included in the grsecurity patch. RSBAC is a totally different project, different authors, etc. It's not related to grsecurity in any way.

You're right I was confused. I was looking through the PaX slides you referenced above and it had GRSecurity and RSBAC right next to each other so I associated them together. So yes the correct comparison would be SELinux against your RBAC mechanism.
