Bug#539775: bogl has executable stack
Tags: patch, security
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 by Fedora for some time now, and fixes this issue.
(There are several others in there, but I haven't reviewed them.)
I've included this in Ubuntu now as well.
