SubjectRO/NX protection for loadable kernel modules
Peter, anyone? What is the state of this? I can see it in the tip tree,
but it doesn't appear associated with a branch. What will it take to
get this into Linus's tree?

http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/x86/linux-2.6-tip.git;a=commitdiff;h=65187d24fa3ef60f691f847c792e8eaca7e19251

This feature is needed before the function-pointer const-ification patches
will really have any meaning.

Thanks,

-Kees
