Bug#539775: bogl has executable stack

Package: bogl
Version: 0.1.18-3
Severity: normal
Tags: patch, security
User: ubuntu-devel@lists.ubuntu.com
Usertags: origin-ubuntu karmic ubuntu-patch

Hello!  When running a kernel that handles non-executable memory
(PAE mode), it is preferred to have applications that do not have
an executable stack for security.  The small attached patch has
been carried[1] by Fedora for some time now, and fixes this issue.
(There are several others[2] in there, but  I haven't reviewed them.)

I've included this in Ubuntu now as well.
