How about the patch below (on top of Linus' current bk tree)? Only
platforms which had VM_DATA_DEFAULT_FLAGS changed (as a result of the
NX patch) will need to define LEGACY_VM_DATA_DEFAULT_FLAGS to the old
value. AFAIK, that's x86 only, so the impact is very minimal and
should retain the existing behavior on all other platforms.
