ELF: Omit PT_GNU_STACK segment if -z execstack is provided.

Authored by ruiu on Nov 24 2015, 3:10 PM.



In the previous patch (r254003), I made the linker emit PT_GNU_STACK
unconditionally. But sometimes you want to have a control over the
presence of the segment. With this patch, you can omit the segment
by passing -z execstack option.

Thanks, this works for the cases I care about. The refinement of the test case is minor, just trying to make sure both cases are handled consistently.


The intention here is that the notes are dropped, so shouldn't that be checked for the RWX case as well?
