    Ie. on loading of a binary could quickly scan it for illegal
    sequences and overwrite with NOPs, then execute it. Of course, this
    doesn't cater for things that does J-I-T compilation & execution
    though.

    You roughly have described how we hope to work around it.

    IRIX does something very similar to work around cpu lockup
    bugs on early MIPS r4k parts.
