SubjectRe: [patch] remove MNT_NOEXEC check for PROT_EXEC mmaps

No, the solution I wanted to evaluate, is "chmod 'go-x'".
For that to work, something like this is needed:
Then you can't invoke directly and if you happen to
have "noexec" on all the writeable mounts, then you can't
also use your own

Of course if would check /proc/mounts, then it will
do so also for the shared libs, so LD_PRELOAD won't trick it.
I understand that parsing /proc/mounts is silly (I have
admitted that earlier in that thread already), but why not to
at least check the access(X_OK)? _must_ check access(X_OK)
before executing - why not yet?
Oh wait, access(X_OK) doesn't seem to work...
The attached patch is needed to get it working.
Does the patch look good? I think it was just a bug.

Why not having an exec perm on a file doesn't prevent PROT_EXEC then?

In any case, guys, can the attached patch be applied?
Arjan, it enforces "noexec", just as you wanted to see. :)
Please say "no" now, not when I mail it to Andrew, if possible.
