Subject[PATCH v3] MIPS: Add nonxstack=on|off kernel parameter
Date
From: Miodrag Dinic <miodrag.dinic@mips.com>

Add a new kernel parameter to override the default behavior related
to the decision whether to set up stack as non-executable in function
mips_elf_read_implies_exec().

The new parameter is used to control non executable stack and heap,
regardless of PT_GNU_STACK entry. This does apply to both stack and
heap, despite the name.

Allowed values:

nonxstack=on Force non-exec stack & heap
nonxstack=off Force executable stack & heap

If this parameter is omitted, kernel behavior remains the same as it
was before this patch is applied.

This functionality is convenient during debugging and is especially
useful for Android development where non-exec stack is required.
